Beware of This DEADLY Sleep Habit!
Tossing and turning all night will make anyone downright miserable.
It leaves you frustrated during the night… and then groggy, tired, and moody the next day.
But those sleepless night do more than affect your attitude.
According to a recent study, they’re TERRIBLE for your health…
In fact, they can be deadly.
For a recent study published in the European Heart Journal, researchers looked at data from three sleep studies involving 8,000 women who were tracked for up to 11 years.
Participants wore sleep monitors to determine their sleep disruptions throughout the night.
Here’s the thing… you don’t have to wake up to experience disrupted sleep.
Noise, temperature, or pauses in breathing due to sleep apnea can disrupt your sleep even if you don’t realize they’re happening!
As this recent study determined, if these disruptions happen on a regular basis, your health can take a hit.
Compared to women who slept soundly, those who experienced more nightly sleep disruptions had nearly DOUBLE the risk of dying from heart disease.
And men who experienced more sleep disruptions had a 25 percent higher risk of dying early from heart disease.
Now, this could be a question of the chicken or the egg.
Are underlying health problems increasing the risk of sleep problems (and therefore the risk of dying from heart disease), or is it causing them?
This study didn’t answer that question.
Likely, it’s a little of both.
You see, risks for heart disease like obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes can lead to disrupted sleep.
And when your sleep is disrupted, your sympathetic nervous system is activated. This triggers the release of stress hormones that increase your heart rate and blood pressure — two things that increase your risk of heart disease.
So, to get better sleep at night, you must fix your environment.
Don’t eat or drink alcohol or caffeine late at night, eliminate blue light exposure after dark, sleep in a cool, dark room WITHOUT any electronic devices that emit EMFs (like your phone), and go to bed at the same time every night.
Also consider if any medications your taking could be having an impact.
