Losing out on sleep creates a viscous cycle in your body, making you prone to various factors contributing to weight gain.  For optimal health, experts say you should try to get 7.5 hours of sleep a night.  If you have trouble sleeping, stick to a nightly routine, exercise during the day, banish worries to a journal, and keep pre-bedtime activities relaxing.
