Get a Good Night’s Sleep (6/9)

People who sleep six hours or fewer on average consumer an additional 300+calories per day as a result. This is largely due to the fact that sleep deprivation causes an increase in levels of ghrelin, a hunger hormone, and a decrease in levels of leptin, a hormone that helps you feel full. Furthermore, lack of sleep negatively impacts willpower and causes your body to crave sweets and other carb-loadedfood.
