How have you been progressing with the Performance Triad challenge. Have you been monitoring your sleep, activity and nutrition habits?

Sleep Goal
Avoid drinking alcohol before bed. Alcohol initially makes you feel sleepy, but disrupts and lightens your sleep several hours later.

Activity Goal
Aim to walk 10,000 steps during your daily routine. Use a personal fitness device, a smartphone app or pedometer to count your steps.

Nutrition Goal
Check your empty calorie intake. Empty calories are foods with added calories from sugars, solid fats and alcohol. These foods quickly use up your calorie allowance and fail to provide your body with the required nutrients.
