A good night’s sleep is essential to repair, heal and restore your body overnight, especially the heart, blood vessels, immune system and cardiovascular system.

You need to get enough sleep to keep these parts of the body and your vital organs functioning at their optimal levels.

The Sleep Council site states: “Research has found that those who frequently get fewer than six hours a night are at significantly increased risk of stroke and heart disease, with evidence that not sleeping enough may ramp up the ‘fight or flight’ response to stress, releasing hormones that speed up heart rate and raise blood pressure.”
