Hey everybody. I have a quick question for you.

When you think about weight loss, do you also think about sleep?

Maybe you do. And maybe you don't. But a lot of people don't realize that weight loss and sleep are connected. 

So, think about it. Think about when you go to bed at night and you don't get a great night sleep. How do you feel the next day?

I usually feel kind of groggy and unclear. And just kind of foggy. Right?

I'm a little short with people. Sometimes I get a little mean the next day because I'm just so tired. 

But when I go to bed at night and I get a great night sleep, I wake up feeling clear, open, motivated, ready to tackle my day. And I usually make better decisions throughout my day.

So, this is why sleep is so important. 

When you're trying to lose weight, you really want to be able to make the best decisions throughout your day. Specifically, when it comes to food. 

So, if you get a good night sleep you're more likely to think clearly during the day and make better decisions about food.

Now, in a previous video I talked about The 5 Simple Steps To Losing Weight. And I'll quickly go over what those are. 

Step number 1 is to create and follow a sleep routine. 

Step number 2 is to drink enough water everyday. 

Step number 3 is to create and follow a food plan.

Step number 4 is to track everything. Write it down. 

And step number 5 is to self-coach, which is basically just a form of journalling.
