You need good quality sleep. Poor sleep (too little, too much, interrupted), is linked to high blood pressure, atherosclerosis (clogging or hardening of the arteries), heart failure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and obesity. Talk with your doctor about lifestyle changes or treatments that can help you sleep better.
Michaelyn’s heart advice: “Just move! Take your dog for a walk; even if you don’t have one.”
