Keep Getting Sick? This Might Be To Blame
According to studies done at University of California San Francisco, sleeping less than 5 hours a night makes you 28% more likely to come down with a cold. Your immune system won’t work as well if it doesn’t get enough rest. Seven hours of sleep is the recommended amount. Not getting adequate sleep can cause stress, weight gain, wrinkles, and a cold. What your mom told you is actually true, if you don’t get a good night’s sleep, you actually could catch a cold. If you are struggling with insomnia, you should talk to your doctor. There are long term consequences of losing out on sleep, not just the common cold.
