You’ve probably heard about the “eat less, move more” advice when it comes to weight loss. It looks like such advice may be added with “make sure you get enough sleep!” This study by the research team at The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, found out a link between partial sleep deprivation and obesity.
Here at our Brownwood clinic, we help men and women lose weight not only through strict weight loss diets but also by revamping one’s lifestyle.
How to Build Good Sleeping Habits
1. Maintain a sleep-friendly atmosphere. For a majority of the population, this means a quiet and dark room. If you sleep with the lights on, you might want to read this study linking exposure to electrical light at night to melatonin, a hormone responsible for regulating the sleep-wake cycle.
2. Be consistent with your sleeping and waking time, even on weekends.
3. Limit exposure to TV and other forms of social media. This study found a link between long hours of TV watching to reduced quality of sleep.
