If weight loss is on your mind, junk crash diets and elaborate plans. Instead, doctors say just eating and sleeping well might be the best option. Sleep experts are recommending eight hours of sound sleep a day to fight weight-related issues to stay healthy.
The World Sleep Society (WSS) describes sleep as one of the “three pillars of good health”, the fourth pillar being balanced food and physical exercise. On the occasion of World Sleep Day, that falls on March 17 this year, 2017 (Friday before the vernal equinox), it urged people not to take for granted time for rest and to “sleep soundly, nurture life”. According to experts, there are about 100 types of sleep disorders and 90% of them can be solved by regulating sleeping hours and pattern.
“Individuals, who get an entire night’s sleep without any interruptions, experience lower rates of high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and other chronic illnesses,” says a WSS document on the eve of the World Sleep Day. Good diet and good sleep not only help the body physiologically and psychologically, but also bring down extra weight. “Sleep is a basic human need, much like eating and drinking,” the WSS sad in its 10 commandments on good sleep and sound health.
Sound sleep is especially essential for children as any disturbance in their health patterns in this growing age may have a severe impact later on.“There is evidence of a link between sleep duration and childhood obesity,” the WSS says.
