Recent research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that missing the sleep “sweet spot” of 7-9 hours per night is linked to increased chronic diseases. Both short sleepers (6 hrs or less per night) or long sleepers (10+ hrs/night) had more coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity and anxiety than optimal sleepers. Are you not sleeping 7-9 hrs/night and have a chronic condition? Consult your doctor or sleep specialist.
