Sleep and Weight


Although many people may not realize that there is a connection between sleep and your health, it is a very strong bond between the two. Studies have shown that not receiving the correct amount of sleep can lead to decreased mental performance, reduced reaction time, and even unwanted weight gain. This means that even if you are doing everything right such as eating and exercising, you may still be unintentionally causing some weight issues. This is why it is important to make sure that you are getting a full eight to ten hours of sleep each night, depending on your age and medical requirements.
When you are sleeping well, things tend to go easier for you. After all, you need to give yourself the right tools to complete any task and life is no different. Sleep is like a hammer if you’re trying to hang a picture. You need something to help you get the nail in the wall. Although it may seem counter-intuitive to take a nap instead of exercise when you’re trying to lose weight, sometimes it may be what you need. Now I’m not saying that you should always skip the gym to sleep, but use your best judgement and listen to your body. If it’s saying that you need to get a little shut eye, it might be best to do just that.
One of the great things about CoolSculpting by ThinSculpting is that you can do both at once! When you come in for one of our FDA cleared procedures, you will have an hour or so of down time. Some people bring work, some bring books or their phones, and some people use the rare time off to nap. We have no problem whatsoever with our patients falling asleep in our office, especially if it helps them get through the procedure quickly and comfortably.
