Bedtimes aren’t just for kids anymore. Researchers say there may be a “golden hour” for adults to fall asleep or face serious health risks.
A new study in the European Heart Journal says the ideal bedtime is between 10 and 11 p.m.
HEART HEALTH BENEFITS
Researchers said people who regularly went to bed during that window had the lowest risk for heart disease. Even shifting your schedule by a couple of hours, like say, going to bed at midnight, could have serious consequences.
People who went to bed after midnight saw a 25% higher risk for heart disease, researchers found. The association between bedtime and heart disease was stronger in women.
“Our findings suggest the possibility of a relationship between sleep onset timing and risk of developing cardiovascular disease, particularly for women,” the study says. #WakeUpCLT #Bedtime #Sleep
