Sleep, weight and happiness
We make weight loss simple. By sticking to your personalised SmartPoints® Budget and using our digital tools to track your progress, you can expect to lose around two pounds per week on average.
But weight loss doesn’t stop at what you eat – or even how much you move.
Sleep duration, sleep quality and even whether you snore can impact your weight, and how likely you are to succeed on a weight loss programme.
Mood also plays a significant role. Does being happy help you lose weight? Does losing weight make you happy? Scroll down for the answers, and the science behind them.
WW Freestyle helps you build healthy habits for life, including deeper sleep and increased happiness.
WW Freestyle is our science-backed weight loss and wellness programme. And it works – members lost 8% more weight on Freestyle than on our previous programme**.
We love sleep! From curated Headspace content on the WW app to a silky sleep set featured in our innovative rewards programme WellnessWins™, we understand how important sleep is on your weight loss and wellness journey.
Eat better, sleep better, feel better – it’s as simple as that! Brighten up the world around you by building healthier habits with our Wellness Workshops and 4.8* rated app. From uplifting guided workouts with Aaptiv to our inspirational social network Connect, there’s plenty to keep you smiling.
