7. Make sleep a priority
We know, we know, we’ve told you a million times before, but getting at least seven hours of shut-eye each evening is a must. Not only will getting adequate sleep help you focus at work, it’ll help you give your all at the gym and fend off cravings for fattening foods. “Skimping on sleep causes production of the stress hormone cortisol to rise and that’s been shown to affect everything from weight and immune function to chronic disease risk,” says White. “Lack of sleep also makes sweet and salty comfort foods more appealing, likely because you’re tired so your body’s looking for any source of energy it can find. Over time, eating these types of food can cause weight you’ve lost to pile back on.” To stay trim, head to bed on the earlier side and stay away from blue light (the type that emits from cell phones and TVs) at least a half-hour before cozying in. These lights can make it more difficult to doze off.
