If we told you once, we told you a million times: GET SLEEP! A LOT OF IT! And if you didn’t listen, maybe the combination of the upcoming cold weather and this fact will finally convince you:
A new study shows that getting more sleep makes a huge difference for our immunity system, and on the flipside, the lack of proper sleep is majorly detrimental…
After clinically administering the common cold virus to 164 people, scientists found that those who slept less than 6 hours a night over the course of five days were four times as likely to be infected than those who slept 7 to 9 hours. Those who got less sleep also struggled to fight the virus off.
Did you hear that, ladies? Four times as likely to get sick. So off with Netflix– it will still be there in the morning. Get your Zzz’s, girl.
