Poor Sleep and Heart attacks

A study reports that going to sleep 10pm is linked to lower risk of heart disease.

The study suggests that “Early or late bedtimes may result in individuals missing cues that help reset body clock each day”

The association with increased heart problems was stronger in females.

Even though going to bed early is very hard with globally interconnected mobile devices, it is important we all sleep well !
