Jeannette recommends … Sleep against stroke


Recently, researchers discovered that there was a strong link between our sleep, our physical activity and our risk of stroke!


I find it very interesting because it is a topic that concerns us all and I personally asked myself many questions about my sleep!






In fact a recent study by researchers at New York University’s Medical School among 300 000 adults over 45 years, interviewed between 2004 and 2013, shows a strong link between strokes and the amount of sport we do, as well as our sleep time.


Furthermore, we notice in this study that people called average sleepers, that sleep 7 or 8 hours a night, would reduce their risk of stroke by 25%.


However, the short sleepers, those who sleep less than 7 hours a night, increase by 22% their risk of stroke.


But what I find most surprising is that the “long sleepers”, sleeping more than 8 hours per night are more vulnerable to stroke, with a staggering increased risk by 146%!


But the most important reduction of the risk of stroke was measured among average sleepers, who besides practice a regular physical activity, namely 30 to 60 minutes of vigorous physical activity, such as walking, swimming, cycling or gardening, at least three times a week!


I will never repeat it enough, play sports! And do not sleep too much, 8 hours of sleep per night max!
