Sleep helps us thrive by contributing to a healthy immune system, and can also balance our appetites by helping to regulate levels of the hormones ghrelin and leptin, which play a role in our feelings of hunger and fullness. So when we’re sleep deprived, we may feel the need to eat more, which can lead to weight gain."
Sleep is very much a part of the big picture. Now grab your pillow, turn the light and cell phone off and make sure to catch those zzzzzz's!
Off to snore a hole in the pillow.....Good night!
