Sleep More!

Woman Standing on Scale

Women always pursue perfection. To stay thin or to lose weight, not only are they willing to waste their time in the gym, they also go on diets that men have absolutely no idea about. There are extreme, expensive ways to obtain a perfect figure such as acupuncture and cosmetic surgeries. However, a study shows that when women don’t get enough sleep, all their hard work would be wasted. An experiment was held in Uppsala University in Sweden where 400 women were tested for 2 years. 200 of them were only allowed to sleep 5 hours a night and the other 200 of them were to sleep for 8 hours. The results show that those who slept less than 5 hours a night, on average, had waists 8 centimeters wider than those who slept 8 hours a night. The study shows that there is a close link between obesity and lack of sleep. Women who don’t sleep enough and do not dream at night are more likely to store more body fat and generate more hormones than those who sleep 8 hours or more a night.
