While we know the importance of better sleep to feeling good, it actually goes deeper than that. Your body relies on good quality sleep more than you think. In this article, we will be going over some ways getting more quality sleep can drastically impact your heart health.
Sleep is this time for your body to repair itself, and get it prepared for your day. Recent studies have found that a lack of sleep can actually lead to an increase in calcium build up on your arteries. This calcium buildup puts you at a higher risk for heart related issues, even a heart attack.
A lack of sleep can also change your daily habits. Your body produces an appetite-suppressing hormone as you sleep, but without enough sleep, this hormone is out of balance. You may find yourself looking for sugar pretty often, which is your body's way of staying awake and replacing this hormone.
To get more sleep we recommend doing more physical activity, limiting blue light screens before bed, doing some stretches, reading, limiting caffeine consumption, and limiting alcohol consumption. All of these will not only improve your sleep, but also keep your heart healthy.
