Recently, the time that we (both women and men) take to sleep has reduced to 6-7 hours from 7-8 hours a night. Though the steady decrease many not seem to be a great deal to many, but it has a difference in our bodies!

What Lack Of Sleep Means To Your Health
Severe health problems can be caused by lack of sleep and can sometimes acts as trigger for disease and illness. Research has shown that those who normally spend less than 6 hours sleeping are more prone contracting a heart disease.
A review presented in the European Heart Journal back in 2011 where 15 medical studies were conducted on around 475,000 showed that there is an increased risk of about 48% of dying or developing a coronary heart disease for those who have shortened sleep cycles. It also revealed that the risk of dying or developing stroke was also 15% greater in those individuals.
The study further revealed that individuals who spend around 9 or more hours sleeping have an increased risk of 38% of dying from or developing a coronary heart disease while the risk of being a victim of stroke is 65%. Like with everything else, balance is what has to be taken into consideration when it comes to sleeping.
It was also found out in a different study that those who do not have enough sleep risk being victims of high blood pressure. Whenever most of us are a sleep, our body takes that time to lower the body blood pressure and if we’re going to sleep for a shorter time, it means that dip will not have enough time to be achieved.
