Why Quality Sleep Should Be Part of Your Longevity Strategy | Lifespan News



According to a new study, poor sleep quality may be a major factor for developing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. It was already known that poor or insufficient sleep increases your risk of various chronic conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, obesity, and kidney disease, but the authors of this new study wanted to figure out the link between poor sleep and the risk of developing dementia. The researchers used data from an ongoing study of older US adults, the National Health and Aging Trends Study, or NHATS which followed participants for five years, and it was found that people who reported having less than 5 hours of sleep a night had double the risk of developing dementia than people who slept 7-8 hours a night.

  1. I am guilty of pre-bed TikToking. 🙁

    I'm excited about the findings of the intermittent fasting study, though! Of all of the popular interventions, that's the one that I think I can most reliably stick to.

  2. Nice! I make sure to stop eating 3 hours before bedtime, avoid any screen or room light 2 hours before bed time, I meditate 1 hour before sleep time, and I go to bed at arround 9:40-9:50 pm so I have the time to sleep from 7 to 8 hours at least before my breakfast time, and to go outside and be able to benefit from morning light and do morning work outs. So far, I can feel a tiny bit of sleepiness after my lunch time, but I feel active most of the day and I fall asleep before 30 mins.
