Bright light therapy can help get your pre-quarantine body back!
As the pandemic dies down, you may be putting on your first pair of non-stretchy pants in almost a year. If your favorite jeans no longer fit, you’re not alone. In a study of more than 19,000 people globally, more than 35% of participants gained weight. 71% of those people gained more than 5 pounds.
Being able to lose your “quarantine 15” may be harder than it used to be. Many of us have become accustomed to sedentary life styles and being indoors. When we’re indoors all day, we miss the biological cues of the sun that tell us when to eat and sleep. This can cause us to eat too much or too late in the day. It can also lead to us having a poor sleep schedule, which has been linked to obesity and diabetes.
