No matter how healthy you are, you still need to sleep and recharge at the end of the day. Your body has its way of telling you it needs to rest for a while to prepare for the next day. And much more than that, your body needs sleep more than anything else or risk functioning like a zombie the following day. No matter what your preoccupations in life are, you should not push yourself to the limit by continually depriving it of its much-needed rest.
FYI, sleep maintains your physical health and healthy brain function. Learning (new information) is so much easier if you have slept well the night before. You’d be surprised at how badly your body suffers if you make it a habit of losing sleep whatever your reasons may be. Your heart is one of the major body organs that needs that eight hours of sleep the doctors recommend. Chronic sleep deprivation can leave you with stiff arteries that will make it harder for your heart to pump blood back to your body. Sounds scary but it is true.
No matter what you do during the day, don’t sacrifice your sleep all the time just to get everything finished before hitting the sack. Your cardiovascular health greatly suffers even if you are a healthy person yourself. The sad thing, though, is that one in three American adults lack sleep or suffer from sleep-related disorders nowadays. Many should visit sleep clinics, but rarely do. Not good numbers at all.
A healthy heart needs plenty of sleep. It’s what the experts are saying over and over again but many people are just too stubborn to give it the time of day. Shortchanging sleep is no longer new and many Americans are guilty of doing it for several decades now. Sleep is the last thing on people’s mind because of the many distractions in life and they are unknowingly harming their health.
Habitual short sleepers are at higher risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. However, it is a vicious cycle many people can’t easily get out of mainly because of our modern lifestyle and the many distractions in our environment you can’t just easily ignore either. What you need to remember, though, is that you don’t develop a cardiovascular condition overnight. It is losing sleep repeatedly that gets you in trouble. Habitual short sleepers should be made aware of this so they know what they are getting themselves into by pushing their bedtime even further and how much their hearts suffer in silence.
