Sleeping in is good for your health

There is nothing better than a lie in, a chance to catch up on some much needed sleep, though for many of us we begin to feel guilty. We think that we should be doing something else, we lead busy a life and have a lot to get done, and ‘do we really have the time for a lie-in?’

Well, finally we may be able to give the perfect excuse to our partners. Recent research from Duke University in America has shown that women are more susceptible to heart disease if they suffer from a lack of sleep than men.

Behavioural science experts measured the levels of blood chemicals in participants of the study. They found that women whose sleep was disturbed were more prone to chemical markers that indicated higher risks of heart disease.

They found the 33 percent of women who suffered from disturbed sleep had protein levels that were associated with a higher risk heart disease.

Additionally, poor sleep was also associated with higher levels of depression, anger and psychological distress.

In the study, 210 male and female participants were used to test the affects of sleep disturbance. The study shows that the men were less affected by poor sleep than women, and that it was the time it took a person to fall asleep that appeared to have the most dramatic affect on a persons health.

So when you can, have that extra half hour in bed, have a lie-in, and if anyone asks, just tell them it’s for the good of your health.
