The Harmful Effects Of Sleeplessness

-Lack of proper sleep or sleeplessness can lead to heart attacks, stroke and lower bone formation.

-Sleeping for even less than 30 minutes in afternoon and eating peanuts was also discovered to improve sense of well-being and prevent future heart attack and stroke.

The importance of proper sleep pattern cannot be overemphasized as our bodies during this period naturally tries to balance itself.

This recent discovery was however carried out in a study published  March 31, 2017, in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.

And according to first author and a Master’s degree student at China Medical University, Shenyang, China, Qiao He, said: “Sleep is important for biological recovery and takes around a third of our lifetime, but in modern society more and more people complain of insomnia. For example, it is reported that approximately one-third of the general population in Germany has suffered from insomnia symptoms.”

Researchers have found associations between insomnia and poor health outcomes. But the links between insomnia and heart disease or stroke have been inconsistent.”

In another research result presented Saturday at the Endocrine Society’s 99th annual meeting in Orlando, Florida, United States, showed:

  • A link between sleeplessness and bone loss.
  • In whay is now been described as nappiness. The research now believes that another secret to happiness is least 30 mins nap in the afternoon.


Prof. Richard Wiseman, of the University of Hertfordshire, said: “Previous research has shown that naps of under 30 minutes make you more focused, productive and creative, and these new findings suggest … that you can also become happier by just taking a short nap.”

Bottom Line

  • Sleeplessness is unhealthy and can cause some serious health issues such as heart attacks, Low bone formation and stroke.
  • Sleeping for at least 30 mins in the afternoon can make you happier.
