Five Tips to lose weight whilst you sleep.


Alcohol disrupts your quality of sleep in a number of ways. Excessive alcohol results in you not achieving REM sleep, which is vital. It is why you can go to bed after a heavy drinking session, wake in the morning after maybe 10 hours and feel just as tired as when you went to bed. Alcohol and a perfect nights sleep do not mix at any level.

Sleep, Sex, Rest and Relaxation

Your Bedroom should be a sanctuary, your special place reserved exclusively for Sleep, Sex, Rest and Relaxation. Low level lighting is best. This will be detected by the Pineal gland which senses low light releasing melatonin (it makes you sleepy). Also make sure the bedroom is at a comfortable, cool temperature.
