Do you sometimes have the feeling where you cannot drag yourself out of bed in the morning? If you did, then what you need to do is sometimes to sleep in!
And this is what Harvard Medical physicians advise. Rolling over in your bed when your alarm tries to wake you up, may send you on a guilt trip, but it also may extend your life. It is more likely to suffer a heart attack early in the morning, rather at some other time of the day. Primetime heart attacks are between 6:00 AM and 9:00 AM. This is a statement of Geoffrey Toffler of the Harvard Medical team. He says that blood collating, a common cause of heart attacks, seems to occur more in the morning. When this is combined with the body’s responses to waking up and becoming active the result may be a heart attack.
What is also interesting are the symptoms we have when our brain is bracing the body for the psychological barriers through the day, those symptoms are really similar to the ones that can lead to a heart attack. Especially if we work in a stressful environment.
Your blood pressure raises and you pump extra adrenaline needed to get up and go. Blood colts, if present, get a head start on their trip to the heart.
Taking life less seriously, and sleeping a little longer may help ward off heart attacks. Also, quit smoking, smoking tends to increase the blood’s clotting tendency.
