The right amount of sleep and reduced stress levels are important for weight loss, according to a new study published in The International Journal of Obesity.
“This study suggests that when people are trying to lose weight, they should try to get the right amount of sleep and reduce their stress. Some people may just need to cut back on their schedules and get to bed earlier. Others may find that exercise can reduce stress and help them sleep. For some people, mind/body techniques such as meditation also might be helpful.”

Even if you’re not trying to lose weight, getting plenty of sleep and doing what you can to reduce your stress level is an essential part of good health.
