Sleep Patterns While Peri-Menopausal

No matter how nutritious your diet is and how much exercise you get, your health will suffer if you don’t get enough restorative sleep.

It’s not only the quantity of sleep you get that matters; the quality of your sleep is also important. To maintain optimal hormonal balance, aim for at least seven hours of high-quality sleep per night.

Inadequate or poor-quality sleep has been shown to decrease fullness hormones, increase hunger and stress hormones, reduce growth hormones and increase insulin resistance.
