Research shows that sleep plays a critical role in regulating hormones, metabolism, and appetite, and chronic sleep deprivation has been linked to weight gain and obesity. Additionally, getting enough quality sleep can improve energy levels, reduce stress, and support healthy eating and exercise habits.
Science supports the notion of improving sleep patterns for enhanced health and fat loss. For example:
To improve sleep patterns, it’s important that your clients establish a regular sleep routine and aim for seven to nine hours of sleep each night.
Avoiding caffeine, alcohol, and screen time before bed can also be helpful, as well as creating a calm and comfortable sleep environment. They can also practise relaxation techniques such as meditation, deep breathing, or gentle stretching can help to reduce stress and promote restful sleep.
By prioritising good sleep habits, your clients can support their body’s natural weight management mechanisms and improve their overall health and wellbeing.
