Sleep & Clothing Size

We have had had some spectacular weather the last week or so in our area. It makes sleeping so much nicer. Did you know that lack of sleep may be one of the culprits for that expanding waist line? A new study out of Great Britain suggests that insufficient sleep may cause you to go up a waist size. Those who averaged 6 hours sleep a night had waists that were about 1.2 inches larger than those that slept around 9 hours a night. Those with less sleep also weighed more. The theory is that less sleep causes an imbalance between two hormones that tell you when to eat and when to stop. Less sleep may upset that balance, making you eat more. Sleeping less also seems to be tied to slower metabolism. Thus, less sleep combines two factors that may contribute to the perfect storm toward weight gain and increased waist size!!.

Short and quick exercises add up!!

For the avid exerciser, walking is probably under appreciated, especially if they are into harder or more strenuous workouts. As I often make note of exercise information, another new research article from the University of Colorado demonstrated with a group of couch potato office workers, that 6 bouts of brisk walking at 5 minutes per session throughout the day, was more effective than a 30 minute daily gym-type workout for overall health. This included improving mood and decreasing fatigue. Even if you have never been one to exercise much or at all, you can improve your overall health with the most minimum of effort!!

Do something! Just not too little or too much!

I talked about how exercise effects our immune system. Did you know that several studies have shown that when elite runners or rowers were exercising at their peak, around competition time, there was an “impressive increase” in respiratory infections? On the flip side, other studies have shown that frequent brisk walking can reduce the number of sick days by over half within 3-4 months. The ‘too-little exerciser” or the “extreme exerciser” can both be at a higher risk for infections.  Moderate exercising, even a brisk walk, can make a profound positive impact on your health. Any physical activity can help. Don’t wait, it’s as simple as that!!
