Science is showing, study after study, how important getting your “zzz’s” is to hormonal balance and metabolism speed. In case you didn’t know, hormone stability is vital for over health since it effects everything from diabetes to depression to heart disease.
A new study, published in “The Lancet,” showed that when sleep was restricted, stress hormones shot up and metabolism dropped like a rock.
This is where the “Sleep Diet” comes in. You need it and it has to be solid, so follow these instructions (like you would a diet) and stick to them.
- Set a time frame for the diet. One week is a good place to start.
- Set your own rules. How much sleep do you want to get each night? Figure out the bedtime you would need to follow to accomplish the desired number of hours. Write it down.
- For the time frame of your diet, stick to your bedtime. That’s the only rule to which this diet adheres. It’s easy to remember, but surprisingly difficult to do.
