5. Sleeping longer may help you to avoid weight gain.
Sleeping for a short period of time, such as 6-7 hours per night, is connected to weight gain. More specifically, it may result in having a wider waist and more belly fat. Not only does this occur in adults, but also in children, especially in their middle childhood years (6-8 years old).
What to do:
- Get 7-9 hours of sleep each night.
