Many people like to sleep during the day. Sleeping becomes their hobby. Many people say that one should not sleep during the day. But we are going to give you good news. A new study published in the journal, Heart, has revealed that people who take naps or fall asleep during the day reduce the risk of a heart attack. That is, sleeping in the day is not bad, although you can sleep 2 times a week in which there is no harm.

In fact, the research team of University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland did a study and came to the conclusion that people who sleep once or twice a day during the day, the risk of heart attack and stroke is reduced by 50%. Compared to those who do not sleep at all during the day. That is, to stay healthy it is very important to rest.


The study also showed that people who snoozed or slept once or twice a day during the day reduced the risk of heart attack, stroke and heart failure by 48 %compared to those who completed the daytime. Weeks did not sleep at all.

For this study, the researchers tracked the activities of 3 thousand 462 Swiss adults between 35 and 75 years for about 5 years. When this study began, about 58 %of the participants in the study said that the bunkers had not taken a nap during the day in the previous week, while 19 %said they had taken a nap once or twice. About 12 %blinked 3 to 5 times and 11 %snoozed 6 to 7 times.


However, according to the lead author of the study, taking a nap in the day can be considered good for the day because the stress level which increases when sleep is not completed, decreases by taking a nap during the day. However, nothing has been said in this study about how long to sleep or to take a nap. But according to the National Sleep Foundation, a 20-minute nap during the day is enough.
