If you’re a night owl, lack of sleep or sleeping at the wrong times probably has a detrimental effect on your body’s ability to fight disease. Antibodies to fight disease are mostly produced during your sleep, this is one of the main reasons why you need seven to nine hours of uninterrupted sleep every night. Do you have problems falling asleep? Nothing helps you get a good night’s sleep than an efficient routine throughout the day – consider when you wake up, when you workout, and when your main meals of the day are. Try removing any electronics from your room, turn your phone off before bed, and don’t eat anything heavy 2-3 hours before bed.
