Guest: Chu-Hsiang “Daisy” Chang, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychology, Michigan State University Has a stressful day at work ever lead you to eat one extra donut or opt for that bag of potato chips over veggies when it came to dinner time? Research indicates that stress during the work day can lead to unhealthy food choices and overeating in the evening hours. So how do we combat that tendency? Sleep. New research studies reveal that a good night’s sleep can serve as a protection against job stress and overeating.
