It’s that time of year to make a change for the better! The best advice we’ve heard on changing old habits to better ones is to take it one good decision at a time. Sometimes it’s that one shift of action that brings about the benefits.

For instance, did you know that sleeping better can help you lose weight? And did you know that having a healthy exercise routine can help you feel better and help control weight? Of course, exercising can also help you feel better during the day too. “There’s a substantial body of scientific evidence that exercise helps improve sleep. Making exercise part of your regular routine can contribute to healthier, more restful sleep—and may help improve sleep issues such as insomnia” (Dr. Breus).

Besides all of those wonderful benefits, there’s also the added benefit of what exercise can do for relieving anxiety and reducing stress. For less anxiety, a mere 5 minutes of exercise is all it takes (Dr. Breus). So if you’re looking to gain some benefits this year from a healthy habit, exercise is a great start! Now who’s ready for a workout followed (eventually) by a great night’s sleep on a Wolf mattress? We know we are!

Pleasant dreams!
