The Secret to Losing Weight...While You Sleep | + FREE Checklist on the Top 10 Tips for Better Sleep Tonight |

Have you noticed that you’ve gained a few pounds lately?

But you’re not sure why?

You’re eating healthy most of the time…

You’re working like a boss…

You’re even working out a few times per week…

So, what gives?

There might be an explanation to slow and steady weight gain that you’ll be surprised by:

You’re getting less than 7 hours per sleep.

Yeah, but who isn’t??

It turns out that poor sleep is a major contributor to weight gain.

Lack of adequate sleep (7-9 hours) puts you at a 55% greater risk of obesity!

That lack of sleep causes:

·        Your brain to crave high-calorie foods

·        A spike in cortisol (remember that stress hormone…link to article)

·        Your body to store fat

·        A decrease in your ability to process carbs (and therefore you store more fat)

·        Your metabolism to drop

·        An increase in cravings

Oh yes, that’s why you’re seriously craving sweets, and snacking like crazy after dinner!

And there’s fascinating research out there on this, like this one study, which followed 16 adults for 2 weeks in the inpatient setting, and deprived them of adequate sleep for 5 days.

You should know that “deprived” meant 5 hours of sleep per night for 5 days…

Sound like a typical work week to you?

In just those 5 days, the adults gained almost 2 lbs!

They ate more carbs, fat, and more calories in general after dinner.

When you’re tired, you simply eat more food.

And if that lack of sleep is chronic (hello, work like, family life, social life), the weight creeps on slowly and steadily.

Want better sleep?  And want it now?

I’ve created a checklist for you with my top tips that you can implement TODAY to get better sleep TONIGHT!

5 Quick Hacks to Reach Your Goals + FREE Printable

If you’ve set a New Year’s Resolution, you’re probably doing well with it so far!

At this point, you’re feeling motivated and excited about your goals and any changes you’ve made to your daily habits so far.

If you look back at previous years, did you keep your resolutions for the whole year?

If not, what month did you stop?

Most people don’t keep their resolutions for more than a few weeks- why is that??

Because the systems are not in place to make the new habit easy and rewarding.

So the question then becomes, how do you make the new habit and resolution easy and rewarding? 

Back in November, I decided I wanted to make daily exercise a habit for the rest of 2018.

I set a goal to exercise for 20-30 minutes per day.

So how have I done?  

I’ve exercised every day for 6 weeks, only missing a total of 3 days.  And I’ve carried this daily habit into 2019.

How was I successful in creating a daily exercise habit?

  1. I identified why I made the goal (exercise makes me feel good)

  2. I tracked my progress (checking it off the calendar and using Habit Bull felt incredibly satisfying)

  3. I found an accountability partner (well, hundreds of partners…I announced my goal to my email list and social media tribe)

  4. I posted everyday that I completed my exercise (this checked the boxes of both tracking and accountability)

  5. I never missed twice (when creating a habit, don’t break your momentum! If you miss a day, start again the next)
