SLEEP

Healthy adults need between 7.5-9 hours of sleep each night to function at their best. Many of us know this is a luxury. National Institutes of Health says adults on average sleeps less than 7 hours a day. So do we really need to sleep so much?

Two common sleep-related issues we face today are sleep deprivation and insomnia. Although two look related, there is a key difference. Sleep deprivation is your sleep opportunity taken away. Insomnia is when you can’t sleep despite plenty of opportunity to sleep.

Chronic sleep deprivation could significantly affect your performance at work, and excessive sleeplessness could jeopardize your health at work. Insomnia often leads to daytime tiredness or sleepiness and/or difficulty focusing on tasks. Sometimes you could also experience digestive discomfort or headaches. Common causes of insomnia are stress, emotional or physical discomfort, and interference in normal sleep cycle.



WEIGHT

Obesity is perhaps the concern that everyone has. Obesity, defined as the condition of being grossly fat or overweight, poses a great threat. International trends report that on average obesity reduces life expectancy by 6-7 years, and that people with a very high waist size are at a higher risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Excessive stress and poor lifestyle choices are major risk factors of obesity. These include eating larger portion than you need or lack of physical exercise. Research studies show that chronic stress can cause your body to release excess cortisol, a hormone known to increase appetite and encourage craving for sugary or fatty foods.




SLEEP AND WEIGHT

There is a growing evidence that poor sleep quality and short sleep duration could be risk factors for developing obesity. Here is why. Less hours we sleep gives us more hours to be appetized and raid the fridge. When you are deprived of sleep, your body raises your level of ghrelin (the hormone that tells you to eat), and decreases level of leptin (the hormone that tells you are full). As a result, you are more likely tempted to reach out for more food. To make matters worse, sleep deprivation could influence our metabolism as well. Clinical studies suggest that obese individuals tend to have lower non-exercise energy expenditure (NEAT)- energy spent by simply sitting, standing and thinking.

As you know, weight gain or weight loss is closely related to the amount of total calorie you consume. High chance is that unless you are very active, consuming extra calorie at night would push the scale towards the weight gain. Just remember, 250 calories could be just few spoons of junk food, but also least 20 minutes jog on a treadmill.

So what do we do? Sleep 8 hours a day? Certainly this might be something you cannot afford, especially if you are working. The best you can do is “sleep well” without stress to maintain your internal balance and metabolism. If you do give in to your craving, try to eat healthy, keep track of your calorie.
