INSOMNIA isn’t just an overnight concern. A study in the journal Sleep concluded that people who have a sleep debt are far less productive during daytime work hours. “INSOMNIA IS ASSOCIATED WITH SUBSTANTIAL WORKPLACE COSTS,” states the study based on surveys.


“Without sleep, your brain’s energy potential not only becomes depleted, but it doesn’t get a chance to shut down for repair,” says Amanda Carlson-Phillips, vice president of nutrition and research at Core Performance. Meaning, insomnia drains your body of energy and efficiency, both mentally and physically. What’s more, “sleep debt will make you feel hungrier, less full and actually decrease the calories you need each day,” adds Carlson-Phillips. So it can lead to weight gain.
