Maintaining a Healthy Weight Linked to Sleep

Getting enough sleep is crucial for maintaining a healthy weight.

While there is no direct evidence that sleep boosts metabolism, lack of sleep has been linked to weight gain. 

Studies have shown that a few nights of bad sleep can cause your resting metabolic rate to decrease, and skimping on sleep can trigger cravings for simple carbs. However, improving your sleep can level out your metabolism and hormones.

To prioritize sleep, aim for seven to nine hours of sleep every night. Work backward from your wake time to ensure you have enough time for sleep and maintain a consistent bedtime routine. 

Some ideas for winding down include

  • Shutting off screens 30 minutes before bed 
  • Doing five minutes of yoga or meditation 
  • Spending a few minutes journaling
  • Reading.
