There are many factors that affect weight loss and living a healthy lifestyle. One very important one is sleep!
How lack of sleep affects your weight loss
1.Enough sleep helps keep balanced energy levels
The better you sleep, the more energy you will have. And the more energy you have, the better your workout will be and the more calories you will burn! Good, energy-filled workouts are crucial if you want to successfully and quickly lose weight. If you don’t sleep enough, you won’t be able to focus not only on your workout but on different everyday activities, which can hinder your weight loss journey.
2.Sleeping enough helps you stay motivated to stick to your weight loss program
We all know that motivation and discipline is key when it comes to weight loss. And as a matter of fact, sleep deprivation or oversleeping can seriously hinder your motivation and your ability to make conscious decisions towards your goals. When you don’t sleep enough, you feel stressed and tired and are unable to focus. Of course, this messes with your emotional stability and motivation towards your weight loss program. You will also likely give in to all those nasty cravings easier, which we know is the killer of all diets!
3.Sleep helps keep your metabolism fast
A study has shown that people who don’t sleep enough have a decreased metabolic rate. But those who sleep enough maintain a stable metabolism. And this is extremely important for weight loss because a healthy metabolism means you burn more calories, which means you lose fat faster.
How to Get A Good Night’s Sleep Every Night?
1.Get a sleep tracker
A sleep tracker monitors how you sleep. It shows you how long you slept and according to your heartbeat, it shows you your deep sleep and light sleep hours. And it gives you suggestions on your sleeping plan based on the data collected, many fit watches have sleep trackers.
2.Try to have a consistent bedtime and wake up time on all days of the week.
This will prevent you from going to bed at 2 am, which usually results in sleep deprivation. And waking up at the same time will keep you from oversleeping. At first, this may be hard but with time you will get used to your sleeping schedule and your body will automatically get tired when it’s bedtime and you will be able to wake up without an alarm at the same time every morning!
3.Avoid long naps
Having a short 30-minute nap in the afternoon is completely fine. But sleeping for up to 3 hours in the middle of the day can seriously hinder your night’s sleep. You will probably have trouble falling asleep at night and end up exhausted the next day, which will result in another 3-hour nap.
Exercising is very important when maintaining a sleeping schedule. Based on a study, people who were more active during the day fell asleep much easier than those who didn’t exercise. This is because physical activity heats your body up and it is much easier to fall asleep after your workout when your body temperature drops. So, make sure you’re being active, and hit the gym or go for a walk!
