No sleep? The Dos and Don'ts of getting through the day

Didn't get all those required 8 hours? How to get the best out of your day

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn.- We all know we should be getting 7 to 8 solid hours of sleep per night. We know the detriments of repeated sleep loss—weight gain, depression, and poor cognitive function, to name a few. And most importantly, we know we simply don’t feel great when we’re low on sleep.

But let’s take a moment to be real here: there are some nights when even the best of intentions don’t work out and for whatever reason—be it a sick kid, menopause, or a work deadline -- getting a full night’s sleep just doesn’t happen. So what do you do on those occasions?

Fitness Expert Chris Freytag with GetHealthyU.com has the Dos and Don'ts for a successful day.

  • Don’t reach for sugar 
  • Do get outside 
  • Don’t over do the caffeine 
  • Do take a cat nap 
  • Don’t skip your workout 
  • Do drink tons of water!!
