Everybody knows that Heart Disease is the leading cause of death amongst both women and men. But did you know that the majority of women have at least one risk factor for heart disease and don’t even realize it? While some risk factors are uncontrollable, such as family history, the American Heart Association says 80% of all heart attacks and strokes can be prevented through simply lifestyle changes. One simple way to cut your risks is to MAKE SLEEP A PRIORITY! Research indicates that people who only sleep 6 hours or less per night are TWICE as likely to have a cardiovascular event, such as a heart attack or stroke! Getting at least 8 hours of shut-eye each night not only will help you feel and look better the next day, but will also help keep your heart healthy, regardless of your age! Now … go take a nap!
