The One Thing Every Resolution Needs

Check out the infographic below to see how sleep impacts just about everything in your life. From exercise to finances, quality sleep is crucial for performing and feeling your best.

Lose weight. Studies show that poor sleep messes with two hormones that control your resting metabolism. A lack of sleep is also linked to having a higher body mass index and gaining weight. Master a new skill. You need sleep to stay focused when learning something new. Sleep also helps you retain new information and improves your memory. Kick a bad habit. It's hard to have self-control when you're tired. That's because being sleep deprived drains glucose from the prefrontal cortex, the area of the brain that helps you resist temptation. Exercise more. No one wants to go to the gym when they're fatigued. And even if you do make it, a lack of sleep has been shown to negatively affect the effectiveness of your workout. Save money. One study showed that sleep-deprived people make riskier and poorer financial decisions. By getting enough zzz's, you'll get on track to make better money choices (and ditch the $5 a day coffee habit!)
