Sleep, Exercise & Your Weight
Sleep, exercise, and weight management are all interconnected. Regular exercise helps control your "sleep/wake cycle." This can help you to fall asleep more easily at night, get a better night's rest, and be more alert during the day—all of which can improve weight management. On the flip side, major disruptions to your circadian rhythm over time can lead to increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer.
