Summer months are meant to be spent on the lake, hiking, or enjoying a walk. But, that doesn’t mean that everyone is outside enjoying the sunshine.
Within a 24-hour day, it is hard to fit everything in: the commute, work, meals, family time, volunteering, activities for your kids. It all compiles into a quick 24 hours. But two of the most critical components to a healthy lifestyle are probably missing during the busiest of schedules: sleep and exercise.
Everyone knows the importance of eating right and exercising to be healthy, but what about sleep? A good night’s sleep is just as important as healthy food and regular exercise. Did you know that you spend nearly one-third of your life sleeping? So you better be good at it!
Alaska Sleep Clinic is honored to be featured in a blog article written by Champneys, the UK's original health resort. Champneys reached out to ASC to find out how important sleep is to a marathon runner's physical and mental recovery after an event. In Alaska, we have our Mountain Marathoners who can benefit from the blog's suggestions, too.
