The health triangle commonly seen in textbooks depicts three corners: nutrition, exercise, and sleep. So why is it that people tend to focus more on nutrition and exercise in regards to being healthy? Whenever people make lifestyle changes, they tend to start with their diet and determine an exercise routine. Hardly ever do they take into consideration the amount of sleep they get. Sleep offers several key health benefits, including giving your body energy for an intense workout or to cook a healthy meal. While sleep may take the back seat to nutrition and exercise on the health triangle, it should be focused on more. Adults who exercise more than four hours each week say they make it a priority to get the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep each night.
