And finally -- another big no-no? "Animals in the bedroom," says Dr. Ojile. You might love to sleep with your pets, but be honest about whether they're disrupting your sleep or not.
As you probably know, it's important to get good sleep on a regular basis, otherwise your health -- from immediate to longer-term -- can be affected. "The first thing that goes is your cognitive ability," says Dr. Ojile. Getting good sleep is important when it comes to thinking and making good decisions, he says. Plus, sleeping well has been proven to improve your workouts helping you slim faster!
There are more immediate health issues, such as a lowered immune system that can result in colds, infections and even breakouts (they call it beauty sleep for a reason!). And he adds, "Not having adequate sleep as part of your routine will diminish your exercise and athletic performance." Longer term, Dr. Ojile says, "Not getting enough sleep increases your risk for things like heart disease, high blood pressure, weight gain and diabetes."
As the National Sleep Foundation says, "Love your bedroom, and improve a third of your life!"
