Your heart has a very demanding job. It’s constantly circulating oxygenated blood to every organ in your body. Poor diet, inactivity, and high stress put even more strain on the heart.
During sleep, your heart rate and blood pressure decrease because your heart doesn’t have to pump as much blood to the other organs that also slow during sleep. Sleep gives your heart the rest it needs to recover and prepare for the demands of tomorrow. Giving your heart sleep can keep it stronger, longer.
