Hey sleepyheads, here's some fantastic news for all you weekend nappers! A recent study, hot off the press in the journal Sleep Health, suggests that catching up on those extra winks over the weekend might just be the secret sauce to a healthier heart.
Researchers from Nanjing Medical University in China took a deep dive into the snooze world, analyzing data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). Picture this – they peeked into the sleep habits of 3,400 people aged 20 and above in the U.S. between 2017 and 2018.
And guess what? The results are nothing short of a bedtime fairytale! Those wise folks who tucked in for at least an extra hour of weekend slumber compared to the weekdays were flaunting lower rates of cardiovascular disease.
