In brief: Having good sleep

Appears to be connected to better health in general, so insomnia may impact on weight gain or loss.
If you are not sleeping well, consider working with a therapist. In addition to some relaxation techniques and simple behavioral changes, hypnosis can be effective.

If you have problems like sleep apnea it can contribute to weight gain.
