Your metabolism is affected in ways you may not realize- such as sleep. Get better sleep with an OSO mattress and explore the connection between sleep and metabolism.
Look around and you’ll see a pretty common theme. We are all tired. I literally just yawned. It’s an epidemic.
The truth is, 30% of adults report getting less than 6 hours of sleep each night. Are you one of them?
Sleep deprivation affects many of us, and the effects of getting an average of 6.8 hours of sleep each night simply isn’t enough for our bodies to function at their best. The National Sleep Foundation recommends 7-9 hours per night for optimal performance, and those few extra hours could be the game changer when it comes to your metabolism.
Your metabolism might not be something you think about daily, but it is working hard for you all day, every day. The function of your metabolism is to convert what you eat into energy. The calories you consume are broken down in the body through a pretty amazing process, giving you energy throughout the day. 70% of the calories you burn on a daily basis? You can thank your metabolism for that.
While weight loss is based on much more than just metabolism, it does play a big part in the total wellness of your body, its efficiency, and your overall health. Relating to weight loss specifically, it’s pretty simple- the faster your metabolism is, the more calories you burn on a daily basis. The more calories you burn, the more likely you are to lose weight if following a proper diet.
So how do we get that metabolism cranked up?! There are many things that can affect your metabolic rate, but an increasing number of studies have found that sleep and metabolism and intricately linked. Sleep deprived individuals may experience a decreased ability to manage blood sugar levels as well a slower metabolic rate. In addition, the less sleep you get the more likely you are to be hungrier during the day, especially craving high-carb or sugary foods.
