Get to Bed Before Midnight to Lower Risk of Heart Disease

by Jodee on March 30, 2009

We all know there are only so many hours in the day, but getting in the habit of staying up late at night to cram more stuff into your waking hours may negatively affect your health. Research has shown that there is a link between going to bed after midnight (and getting less than six hours of sleep a night) and high blood pressure and triglyceride levels. Not getting enough sleep is also linked to a high BMI (Body Mass Index). We may think that we will be getting ahead of the game if we burn the candle at both ends and stay up until all hours, but that is simply not true. Don’t cut back on sleep to try to get more stuff done. It’s just not worth it.
