Sleep is not overrated. Study after study indicates the impact that too little sleep has on our health, skin and emotions.

Burning the candle at both ends might be productive in regards to getting that short term work project done, but the long term consequences can be pretty apparent.

In fact, one study presented at an Endocrine Society national meeting suggests that getting just 30 fewer minutes sleep than you should per weekday can increase your risk of obesity and diabetes. That’s a powerful statistic and shouldn’t be taken lightly.

It turns out if you are sleep deprived, you produce more cortisol- which is a hormone that increases appetite. Stated plainly, you may have less will power when that double chocolate cake gets passed around the table if you are not well-rested.

In addition, we all know that when we are tired, we are more irritable and stress out a little easier than normal. These two things can also lead to bad food choices and skipping the daily workout.

Lastly, your body is often tricked into thinking it’s in danger if you are sleep deprived, which puts your metabolism at risk for slowing down and storing calories as fat vs. burning through them since the body “believes” it may not get sustenance soon.

Bottom line, get your buns to bed and make sure you get adequate sleep. It will make you happier, healthier and feel far more equip to take on whatever life throws your way.

Even if you are doing all the right things, we know based on genetics, aging and hormonal changes, sometimes sculpting our body isn’t as easy as it once was and we need help.

Fortunately, CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared technology that has been performed more than 5 million times world-wide. Why? Millions of people are doing life right, they are sleeping enough, eating pretty healthy and staying active, yet a few areas of the body just don’t budge and leave people feeling less than confident in their own skin.

CoolSculpting is safe, effective and allows busy people to get back to daily activities with little to no downtime. The proof is in the before and after photos and at Bodify we love sharing those wow moments with our clients when they come and see the transformation CoolSculpting had on their body. Parts that have never budged despite endless hours in the gym and ideal eating.

It’s so rewarding to uplift people and offer a service that truly works- this is just one of the many reason Melissa and Jessica, the co-founders of Bodify, opted to open a boutique that only offered CoolSculpting to its clients. The ladies couldn’t be happier with the results their clients get and knowing that because of CoolSculpting moms, dads, wives, husbands, sisters, brothers and humans are walking around more confidently in their own skin!
