Looking to lose weight? Studies have shown that getting your full night’s rest might actually do the trick.

First things first, weight loss is a different journey for every individual. You can read all of the blogs in the world, but not every weight loss recipe will be the right one for you. It is always recommended to discuss your options with a healthcare professional before embarking on your path.

That being said, there are of course certain key factors that generally should be taken into consideration when looking to get effective results. To maintain a healthy lifestyle, it is always recommended to eat clean and to exercise often. But, for some people, implementing the two isn’t quite enough.

According to a study published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, adding just one extra hour of sleep per night can contribute to weight loss.

But, how much should the average person be sleeping per night?

According to recent research, the average person should get at least seven hours of sleep per night. The more or less amount of sleep one gets per night can lead to issues like depression, anxiety or worse thinking skills.

So, if you are looking to improve your physical as well as your mental health, the first place you might want to consider improving is your sleeping habits.
