The Importance of Sleep
Sleeping is a vital action in every living being’s daily routine. It is as important as food or water for someone’s well-being and survival.
You might think that sacrificing a few hours of your sleep is fine. The worst case is that you will be a little bit more tired when you wake up, right? Actually, fatigue is not the only negative outcome of sleep deprivation. Lack of sleep has an impact on various systems on your body from brain to heart.
The Impact of Sleep Deprivation on Heart
An average adult needs at least 7 hours of sleep every night. However, not many people can get that much sleep. This puts more people at the risk of having heart problems, which increase the risk of heart diseases, heart attack and stroke. Some of these problems are:
• High blood pressure: High blood pressure is one of the main reasons behind heart disease and stroke. During sleep, blood pressure goes down. So, if you stay awake for longer hours, your blood pressure stays higher for a longer period of time, increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke.
• Type 2 diabetes: Diabetes is a condition that causes sugar to accumulate in your blood, leading to the damage of blood vessels. Getting enough sleep helps with blood sugar control.
• Obesity: Lack of sleep leads to imbalance in hormones that control appetite and may lead to excessive hunger and weight gain.
The Importance of Right Bed for an Efficient Sleep
