In the News: Get more sleep to drop pounds...


 

It may seem harmless to catch up on those Pretty Little Liars and Gossip Girl re-runs past your bedtime, but facts show that this may not be the case. Word is that slipping up when it comes to getting your zzz's could be encouraging childhood obesity. How? Those night owls spend at least 30 more minutes a day with sedentary behaviors than their early bird counterparts.

A recent study by the journal Sleep followed the days of 2,200 children aged 9-16 and recorded their weight, how they spent their time and the amount of sleep they got each night. Those of you that prefer the wee hours were three times more likely to be missing your daily activity. And we all know what those lazy days can bring about...

To keep your health in check, growing girls should be getting at least eight hours of sleep every night.  So, tonight, click off that trusty television and stock up on sleep. You'll get a burst of energy come morning.

Could this be a culprit to America's tricky weight problem or is it just total gossip?  Tell us what you think, babes.

Would you rather hang with friends than find time to exercise? Why not combine the two and get a bunch of friends to go on a walk or bike ride around town. 
 
You let her BFF borrow your fave top for a party last Saturday but when she returns it, it looks nothing like the top you remember buying. It has holes, stains and only one shoulder. What do you say to your gal pal?
