Words of Wisdom Wednesday-Skinny binnys sleep more

Skinny women snooze 2 more hours per week, compared with overweight people, says a study from Eastern Virginia Medical School. Researchers theorize that a lack of shut-eye is linked to lower levels of appetite-suppressing hormones like leptin and higher levels of the appetite-boosting hormone ghrelin.

Copy Them: Break it down: Two extra hours of sleep a week is only 17 more minutes a day—a lot more manageable, even for the most packed of schedules. Start there and slowly work toward 8 hours of snooze time a night—the right amount for most adults.

  1. Wouldn't that be nice? Yes, we really do need to just shut down our day sooner and go to bed. Is hard when I am only getting 12 hours on weeknights with the family between arriving at home and their bedtimes. I don't want to take any away from them to do all the side projects that keep me up till 11-ish. Will have to find a balance in there somewhere.
