Step 5 in TurboCharged is all about increasing your daily activity. Getting up off your butt and moving more has many benefits. A study from Oregon State University concluded that regular activity will not only keep you more alert during the day but will improve your sleep time too.
People who got in at least 20 minutes per day of moderate activity reported significantly better sleep. Their survey found that these people reported an amazing 65% improvement in sleep quality.
As we point out in the book, adequate activity during the day and a good night’s sleep are very important to your overall health. It seems they go hand-in-hand. Body fat can be a preferential source of energy during sleep and most natural releases of human growth hormone, which is a powerful fat burner, occur during sleep. The deeper and more restful your sleep the better your health and daily energy levels will be.
Make activity and sleep priorities and they will reinforce each other rewarding you with more energy, a leaner body and better health.
