Lack Of Sleep, The Main Cause Of Weight Gain

Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety.

During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. Lack of sleep could lead to many health problems and one of these is obesity.

A new study suggests that disturbed or an incomplete sleep can make you feel hungrier as a human body increases the production of cortisol.

Sleeping less than five hours — or more than nine hours — a night appears to increase the likelihood of weight gain.

There are several possible ways that sleep deprivation could increase the chances of becoming obese.

1. Sleep-deprived people may be too tired to exercise, decreasing the “calories burned” side of the weight-change equation.

2. People who don’t get enough sleep may take in more calories than those who do, simply because they are awake longer and have more opportunities to eat

3. Lack of sleep also disrupts the balance of key hormones that control appetite, so sleep-deprived people may be hungrier than those who get enough rest each night.

By this we know sleep is essential and not sleeping in a dark room really affects your overall health and body metabolism.

Tips to keep the bed room dark
- Cover the illuminated clock faces, teeny power strip “on” lights and making sure the window coverings are effective at blocking street lights, etc.
- Consider motion activated lights instead of steady night lights.
- Eliminate electronics during your bedtime.
- Eye Mask could be one of the best ways to block out all the light which would induce melatonin production which would help to fall asleep faster.

Some people aren't aware of the risks of sleep deficiency. As a result, sleep deficiency is not only harmful on a personal level, but it also can cause large-scale damage.
