Your sleeping habits can affect your heart health

Good sleep for good health

The heart is significantly impacted when the body doesn’t get enough sleep. Research shows that poor sleep quality increases an individual’s risk of developing high blood pressure. You can feel the significant impact of quality sleep when you wake up feeling refreshed. Beyond that, quality sleep positively impacts your heart health, stress hormones, immune system, breathing, and mental status.

 

The recommended amount of sleep

The ideal amount of sleep varies from person to person. According to studies by the American Heart Association, most people need six to eight hours of sleep each day.
