Erika’s Post – How important is your sleep schedule?

 In HCYHealthy

Your sleep schedule matters!

A study funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute found that not keeping a regular bedtime and wakeup schedule, and getting different amounts of sleep each night, puts a person at higher risk of obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and other metabolic disorders.

For every hour of variability in time to bed and time spent sleeping, a person has up to a 27% greater chance of experiencing a metabolic issue.

Study participants whose sleep duration varied more than one hour were more likely to not work the day shift, smoke, have shorter sleep duration, higher total calorie intake, depressive symptoms, and sleep apnea.

The study results suggest that maintaining a regular sleep and wake schedule has metabolic benefits.

Life can get complicated, but do your best to maintain a regular sleep schedule – your body with thank you!
