Health Tip: When Obesity Affects Sleep

Obesity can affect the quality of your sleep and contribute to disorders such as sleep apnea.

The National Sleep Foundation offers these suggestions for losing weight and sleeping better:

  • Avoid fast food, high-fat and high-carbohydrate foods, and eat more vegetables, fruit and fish.
  • Stick to a consistent exercise routine, and avoid exercise within three hours of bed.
  • Take a look at your sleep schedule, evaluating how much sleep you’re getting each night and how you feel when you wake up each morning.
