🦉 Any night-owl guys out there?
If you think you don’t need sleep 😴, you’re fooling yourself.
Here’s a partial list of ways that sleep affects men’s health & hormones:
✔️ Good sleep is needed for the release of growth hormone, which is needed to build muscle, decrease body fat, and maintain brain health.
✔️ A study of more than 2000 men in the United States found impaired sleep to be linked to lower testosterone levels.
✔️ Sleeping less than 5 hours per night has been linked to a 10% - 15% decrease in testosterone levels.
✔️ Sleep is essential for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and maintaining a healthy weight.
I know that sleep is a real challenge for some people (we have strategies to fix that!), but if cutting your sleep short is a conscious choice you are making, you might want to reconsider.
