As I write this, I am bleary eyed. I definitely didn't get enough sleep last night and here I am writing about getting enough sleep! With that said, today’s demands on working families in this day and age of technology, only 60% of us are getting more than 8 hours of sleep. The other 40% who get less than seven hours of sleep tend to gain more weight over time, find it difficult to shed the weight and are, in general, heavier.
In my house, lights out at 10pm doesn’t always work (my husband is a night owl!) but getting myself into bed by 10 and winding down seems to be a more attainable goal-most nights (last night wasn't one of them!)
Overall, sleep is one of the most potent habits you can have to improve your health and lose unhealthy fat, faster. For those of you who need a little more inspiration for getting 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep, see below for some real encouragement!
