Sleep Can Help Weight Loss

Sleep keeps important weight-loss hormones in balance. Without sufficient amounts of sleep , ghrelin rises, so you’re hungrier, and leptin is suppressed, so you’re not as satisfied by what you do eat. If you don’t have enough time to sleep at night, try to squeeze in at least a short power nap during the day. If anxiety is keeping you up, practice relaxation techniques before bed, choose something you love to do and makes you feel refreshed, relaxed and ready for shut-eye. Try organizing a to-do list for the next day so you know you have everything covered. If the mind wants to wonder further, keep a book or a notepad on your nightstand and write it all down. Sometimes the mind needs to process information, writing it down can clear the path for new productive thoughts and help to calm you down knowing that you wont forget! And don’t stay up watching back-to-back episodes of Gossip Girl. Tv has been found to keep you alert, so try getting into the quiet ready-for-bed zone with a little reading instead.
