Getting enough sleep is perhaps one of the most important things we can do for our health and body. Sleep is a chance for the body to repair itself and to reenergize.

Some people have lost their loved ones.
Some people are going through a divorce or a break-up.
Some people have lost everything and have nowhere to turn to.
The COVID-19 pandemic has only made things worse. It has led to lockdowns, lost jobs, deaths, loss of a source of income, etc.

After a long, tiring, and stressful day, everyone just wants to go to bed and sleep all night long.
What if you have trouble sleeping at night?
What if you periodically wake up throughout the night?
What if you keep tossing around your bed?
I don’t know about you, but I don’t call that high-quality sleep. It doesn’t matter if you slept for 8 or even 10 hours last night if your sleep wasn’t high quality.
You can’t expect your brain and body to support you each and everyday if you don’t get enough AND high-quality sleep.

Here are some of the most commonly believed myths:
Sit-ups mainly work your core abdominal muscles which are the rectus abdominis, transverse abdominis, obliques, hip flexors, etc. Doing sit-ups helps tone and strengthen these muscles.

There is nothing more refreshing than taking a shower to cool yourself down and to feel more refreshed.
Well, using the restroom to relieve yourself, drinking water on a hot day, getting a massage, etc. are also equally refreshing but that is a topic for another day.
