Approach your sleep like you do your job or anything about which you are truly passionate. Physically remove yourself from whatever activity which tends to distract you–from the computer, a favorite sitcom, kitchen chores–at a specific and predetermined hour and GO TO BED.
Many of us move so quickly through our days that we don’t allow our bodies and our selves sufficient time to rest. The holidays can be even worse when it comes to our sleep needs. Our bodies all require even more sleep because of all of the additional activity.
There are several studies which prove that the body likes its normal circadian rhythm: light periods and dark periods for each day. When the body is exposed to too much light and not enough dark (sleep) it adversely affects your adipose fat storage. In another study, researchers found that optimal body weight is associated with at least 7 hours of sleep.
So, in conclusion: GO TO BED!
