    It's Fitness Month week 3, and that means sleep and relaxation, and that means our Resting Up contest! Every day this week there'll be a thread in our health and fitness forums, and all you have to do to enter is tell us what you did to rest that day -- sleep, naps, meditation, breathing. The idea is to get a little community pressure going so we all get enough sleep at night, and enough breaks during the day. If you have a sleep tracker or any other app or device that helps you out, you can simply share your results each day!

    This is a great way to keep us all motivated and accountable, and get a little healthy peer-pressure going! Plus, every day you enter is a chance to win a $20 gift certificate! How's that for motivation?!

    So get ready, and get posting in the thread below!

    Well, what I do to rest during the day is to take what I call a "power nap" on lunch, usually only 10 -15 minutes or so, and i just close my eyes and recharge a little bit.

    I always take a nap in my guest bedroom so I don't get too comfortable and nap for too long. 20-25 minutes, with no watch and no alarms to rush me, makes for a good recharge.

    i try to go to bed at the same time every night and wake up at the same time everyday. I dont nap because for me it always screws up my sleep habits.

    What I try to do during the day is follow the 20 second rule - something I found on the internet. It says that every 20 minutes you should look for a bout 20 seconds at an object that is aprox 20 feet away - thus helping your eyes rest (and mind). From my experience - it's impossible to do this every 20 minutes, instead do it whenever you remember or whenever you feel like you could use a short break.

    I'll hit the gym Mon-Fri and rest on Saturday and Sunday. My trainer told me to give my body a solid 48 hours to rest. That give me the opportunity to get some epic naps in. But I'll usually read so that way I don't feel like I'm not doing anything productive.
