Sleeping cycles and stress are two important factors in a person’s life which should be handled wisely. Having irregular sleeping cycle will return a negative effect on the humans body. Furthermore, with the stress obtained from everyday events in life, more risks are expected to be picked up by time. Risks can lead to dangerous complications or disorders which are more serious than humans contemplate.
A recent study conducted by a team of researchers from the German Research Centre for Environmental Health showed that distorted sleeping cycle can increase the risk of obtaining cardiovascular diseases. The study was published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.
The lead author of the study was a professor at the German Research Centre for Environmental Health and the Medical Faculty, Technical University of Munich called Karl-Heinz Ladwig. He commented on the results of the study saying, “Sleep should be a time for recreation, unwinding, and restoring energy levels. If you have stress at work, sleep helps you recover. Unfortunately poor sleep and job stress often go hand in hand, and when combined with hypertension the effect is even more toxic.”
The study is of extreme importance due to the fact that humans are no longer interested in a healthy sleeping pattern. Due to the fast motion of life and events, humans tend to focus on their work and accomplishments much more than their health. This increases the amount of stress affecting a person which leads to complications in blood pressure. Further problems include cardiovascular disorders including heart attacks or strokes.
