Daytime naps once or twice a week may be linked to a healthy heart, researchers say
😴❤Researchers have found that taking a daytime nap once or twice a week may lower the risk of heart attacks or strokes.❤😴
Researchers from the University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland researched the association between napping frequency and duration and the risk of fatal and non-fatal cardiovascular disease complications.
Scientists studied 3,462 people between the ages of 35 and 75 for just over five years. It was found that those who napped occasionally (once or twice a week, for between five minutes to an hour), were 48% less likely to suffer a heart attack, stroke or heart failure than those who did not nap at all.
More research is needed to establish a causal relationship. The findings have been published in Heart, the journal of the British Cardiovascular Society.
Some good news for nap fanatics — a new study has found that a daytime nap taken once or twice a week could lower the risk of heart attacks or strokes.
