How can lack of sleep affect my energy levels if I'm a mom?

Ms. Ashley Koff, RD
Nutrition & Dietetics
Poor sleep catches up to most moms. It also sets moms up for entering a vicious cycle whereby they plunge into deeper sleep deprivation (and reel from its numerous negative effects), and avoid healthy behaviors that can counter the bad mood, such as exercise and eating right. So even if you say you're okay on four or five hours, you should take a good look at your sleep habits if you are unhappy with your energy, not to mention your looks and your weight. See what happens when you force yourself to get more sleep. You just might force yourself to lose unwanted weight and achieve a more beautiful, energetic you.
