Sleep Well for Your Weight

Do you feel sleep is affecting your weight?

Not getting enough sleep is linked to weight gain. Not enough sleep also causes you to feel sleepy or tired during the day—it can even affect your mood. This can make healthy lifestyle changes harder to manage. For example, you may be too tired to be active or cook a healthy meal.
