Connecting the Dots.
My last two posts may have seemed like random fyi's, but there was a purpose in me posting them.
First, let me say that I did not come up with those on my own. They are copy/paste from the Internet.
So, what are the dots, and what's the connection? Well, for me it is this.
1. Water, more of it
2. Sleep, in bed by 10:00pm
3. Food, none after 8:00pm
Why? Well, I'm not on a huge push to drop a bunch of weight or anything like that. I picked these three things because they require absolutely no investment whatsoever. I don't have to buy a membership to a gym, I don't have to try to squeeze another hour in to my day. But, they contribute hugely to one's health, as can be seen by the facts that were posted. Seems like a no brainer.
Now some of you may be asking, "But I didn't read anything about the 'no food after 8:00pm' thing" You are correct, and there is a reason for that. The reason I didn't post anything about it is because as far as I can tell, it's a myth. From what I found on the Internet, there is really nothing overwhelmingly good or bad about eating late. Yes, I found info that suggests that sugars in your system inhibit the process of such and such and that can contribute to poor quality of sleep and whatnot. But I didn't find anything that was as concrete as the other two things.
Drinking water all day has been easy at work, but getting to bed by 10:00 has been the hardest thing. I think the closest I've come is 10:04 one time. Eating after 8:00pm...I've cheated a bit on that as well. But overall, this hopefully becomes a longterm overall change.
