1 to 2 naps a week may keep heart healthy

There's new evidence that daytime naps may be linked to a lower risk of heart attack or stroke, but only if they're limited to a few times a week.

The research, published Monday in the journal Heart, is based on data collected from nearly 3,500 people living in Switzerland.

"We looked at healthy adults and found that people who take occasional naps — once or twice a week — had a lower risk for cardiovascular disease compared to people who were not napping at all," said Nadine Häusler, an internist at University Hospital of Lausanne, and lead author of the new research.

Häusler and her colleagues tracked the participants for five years. All were between 35 and 75, basically healthy without any evidence of heart disease, and none were overly sleep-deprived.

The frequency of napping varied. More than half (58 percent) said they never took a daytime siesta, while about one in 10 said they nodded off almost daily.



Yay, one of these that's actually good news for me, since I always like my naps :P .

One thing to note is that this study was purely observational - so, in and of itself, it hasn't proven any kind of causal link - but, maybe that can be established with further studies.

Wow. This is kind of interesting. It makes sense as it would add an extra rest for the heart and the body. I used to nap a lot but I rarely ever do these days. Either way, I am sure I’ll have a good heart because of my exercising.

So being lazy does have a virtue.

I certainly hope so. It'd make me feel a lot less guilty :lol: !

Then again, I am kinda sleep-deprived, so I guess I wouldn't fit into the study :( .
