The Golden Chain of Health – Quality of Life

Hello!! Welcome to the Day 6 of the Golden Chain of Health! Today, I am going to share the 5th benefit of 11 surprising benefits of sleep, Give You a Quality of Life.

Sometime I really think that we deserve quality life for us to enjoy, especially with our families. However, do you know that our lifespan with get shorter and shorter if we have too much or too little sleep?

In a 2010 study of women ages 50 to 79, more deaths occurred in women who got less than five hours or more than six and a half hours of sleep per night.

NOT JUST LIFESPAN! Sleep also affects QUALITY of LIFE.

“Many things that we take for granted are affected by sleep,” says Raymonde Jean, MD, director of sleep medicine and associate director of critical care at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York City. “If you sleep better, you can certainly live better. It’s pretty clear.”

Let’s consider our family, have enough sleep and be healthy for your families.
