The American Heart Association recommends long periods of uninterrupted sleep as a means of promoting better overall health



Fargo, North Dakota – According to the opinions of various experts, getting sufficient amounts of sleep may improve your health in more ways than one.

According to the American Heart Association, getting regular and sufficient amounts of sleep is one of the most important factors in determining how well one’s heart functions.

They say that preliminary research suggests that resting for long periods of time on a regular basis is an excellent way to allow your body to rest, repair, and reorient itself, which is beneficial for your heart health. According to the American Heart Association, this can reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems, can extend to a slower metabolism, and can contribute to mental health issues as well.

“The reason why the doctors recommend that you do that all in one shot, you know – seven to nine hours overnight – is because it really gives your body time to reset, “said Chrissy Meyer, the Regional Senior Director of Marketing and Communications at the American Heart Association.
