Marissa Moore

We are in the midst of National Nutrition Month and the healthy tips keep coming! Today’s tip is courtesy of a very talented registered dietitian, Marisa Moore. Her tip talks about a very important activity we tend to let slide – sleeping.

 

Get Enough Sleep

 

Often overlooked, sleep is one of the best things you can do for your body. Even if you’re eating well and exercising, skimping on sleep can leave a gaping hole in a healthy lifestyle. New research continues to mount showing the impact of sleep on maintaining a healthy weight. People who don’t get enough shut eye tend to make poor eating decisions and are more likely to be overweight or obese and experience chronic diseases like depression, diabetes and high blood pressure. And let’s face it, when you wake up tired it’s just hard to get through the day. So get some great sheets and a cool, dark room and take that train to dreamland to wake up to be your best self!
