A Sleep Study
Here’s a study to highlight why sleep is vital for our health.
A 2010 study published in the journal Sleep found that individuals who reported consistently sleeping less than six hours per night had a 12% higher risk of mortality over a 14-year follow-up period compared to those who reported sleeping between six and eight hours per night. The increased risk was particularly pronounced for cardiovascular disease and stroke.
