Keep Steppin' Up!
The Step It Up Challenge & The Get Up Challenge is on.
Stairs are your friend. Some of the benefits of stair climbing include:
*Strengthening of joints- ankles, knees and hips
*Tones the lower body
*Decreases body fat
*Increases cardio health
*When climbing: remain upright, vertebrae straight, core tight, don't hold onto the rail (unless you about to fall) and get your arms involved. Keep your arms at 90 degrees and raise your left arm when you take a step with your right leg and so on...
How many have you conquered? Keep climbing!
It is true that different age groups generally need different amounts of sleep, however they suggest there is no magic number for the amount of sleep you need. The sleep need is individualized and "adequate" sleep is relative. The focus should be on making your surroundings conducive for optimal rest, avoiding stimulants you know work against you (ex: caffine or alcohol), and getting on the same sleeping routine. Below is a link to two articles for further discussion.
