Do you know what "drockling" is?

Do you hit the “snooze” button in the morning after your alarm goes off?

 

There’s a word for that.

 

It’s called drockling … and instead of giving you a few extra minutes of sleep to help you feel more rested, it actually can make you feel groggier!

 

This month we’re talking a lot about starting the day off right and drockling is NOT a part of the plan.

 

Here’s why: that extra 5-10 minutes of dozing you get between alarms isn’t enough time to give you a complete sleep cycle, and disrupting it in the middle can leave you feeling foggy, cranky, and even more tired.

 

And according to the National Sleep Foundation (US), that grogginess can last up to 90 minutes!

 

Not the best way to start your day.

 

Instead: if you find yourself getting into the “drockling habit” ... ask yourself WHY.

 

  • Are you going to bed too late to get a full night of sleep?
  • Is something interrupting your sleep?
  • What can you do to make sure you get 7-8 hours of sleep at night?
  • Or maybe it’s time to do a little goal-setting so you’re more inspired and excited to get up and tackle the day!

 

This will go a long way toward having less stressful and more productive mornings – which can set the tone for a really great day.

 

P.S. If for whatever reason, you didn't get your sh*t together to jump into our 21-Day Rapid Fat Loss Challenge that started this week, the GOOD NEWS is that we had such an overwhelming interest for the program that we are opening enrolments to a smaller group starting this MONDAY the 22nd of March!

There will be just 10 spots available when we open enrolment tomorrow - so if you're feeling heavy and lethargic because you've got excess weight that won't budge, or you're energy levels are bottoming out by lunchtime then ... DO NOT LET THIS OPPORTUNITY PASS YOU BY. 

 

Talk tomorrow,
