Did you know that falling asleep at the ‘wrong’ time can make an impact on your heart’s health?

A study published by the European Heart Journal found that falling asleep between 10 p.m. and midnight lowers your risk of having heart disease. Whereas, going to bed earlier or later increases your chances of getting heart disease by 25 percent.

According to the European Society of Cardiology, “The body has a 24-hour internal clock, called circadian rhythm, that helps regulate physical and mental functioning. While we cannot conclude causation from our study, the results suggest that early or late bedtimes may be more likely to disrupt the body clock, with adverse consequences for cardiovascular health.”

While this time isn’t feasible for everyone’s lifestyle, the CDC suggests to get at least 7-9 hours of sleep for adults.
