Sleep and Weight Management
Hello Lovely Caring Circle Sisters,
Together, we are learning all kinds of new data about sleep, why it is significant and how it effects our health and wellness. Since the advent of the MRI and other new diagnostic technologies that allow the detailed imaging of the brain, the world is uncovering an incredible amount of new information about why sleep is so important for us to understand and value.
"Sleep is also instrumental in helping us in the area of weight loss. Losing weight is challenging, and keeping weight off can be difficult. Although the medical community is still untangling the complicated relationship between sleep and body weight, several potential links have emerged that highlight the potential weight loss benefits of getting a good night’s rest and the negative health impacts of sleep deprivation."
