For many people, the biggest advantage to getting enough sleep each night is that they feel more alert and energized during the day. However, scientists have recently concluded that sleep may have a positive impact on more than just mood. In fact, their research shows that adults who lead a healthy lifestyle and receive seven or more hours of sleep per night are statistically less likely to suffer from a heart attack or stroke.
This research showed that more and better quality sleep greatly complemented other positive lifestyle habits such as eating healthy, exercising, and avoiding tobacco usage. In fact, the mortality rate for those who followed such a lifestyle was 67% lower when compared to that of less active and well-rested individuals. Watch this video to find out more.
