Five Ways Insomnia Steals Your Health and Fitness

We are a population of overworked, over scheduled people, always trying to cram as much into our days as we possibly can. Some of us even bring our work home with us to finish at night before going to bed, figuring we’ll get a head start on tomorrow’s work. We tend to stay up late to watch the news or a late-night television show to try and relax before bed. We drink, eat or smoke late at night and that tends to keep us up or cause us to wake during the night, robbing us of a really good night’s rest.

We’ll cover five key factors: 

1. How Insomnia Slows Weight Loss And Muscle Growth 

2. How might you be at risk for diabetes?  

3. Can lack of adequate sleep lead to obesity and a higher body mass index? 

4. Is there a risk of heart failure?

5. A compromised immune system
