It’s true that making fitness goals is a great way to elevate your life. To reach those goals, routine exercise – whether it’s hitting the weights and treadmill in a gym, going ten rounds with a punching bag in a dojo, feeling the burn on a yoga mat, or digging deep on a sports field – will have to play a part. Last week we highlighted homes that make deciding where to work out a luxuriously easy decision – in the home.
However, there is another part to reaching your fitness goals that we can’t overlook – the importance of sleep. Sleep keeps your heart healthy, reduces stress, improves memory, and helps the body repair itself. Today we’re highlighting a few luxurious homes with fireplaces in the bedroom to leave you dreaming of sleep, and hopefully soon, asleep and dreaming (and reducing your body’s stress hormones).
