What is the best bedtime for better heart health?\

The best time for your heart health usually depends on various factors. Researchers suggest falling asleep anytime between 10 pm and 11 pm is good for your heart. This is because the time between 10 pm and 11 pm is in sync with the circadian rhythms and daylight exposure in most people.

The study's authors add that there has been a lot of research into the relationship between how long people sleep and how it affects their hearts. However, the link between bedtimes and heart disease has remained a mystery. The circadian rhythm that determines your physical and behavioral patterns follow a 24-hour cycle. This is common to almost all living beings such as plants, and animals as well. Moreover, the daylight time also has an average cycle of 12 hours of daytime and 12 hours of darkness. Following this helps have a consistent bedtime and a well-maintained sleep cycle.

**Does the amount of hours or timing matter?**Sleep deprivation has been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease in numerous studies. People who sleep for less than 7 hours per night are at a higher risk. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the CDC is a reliable source for information on heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and obesity (CDC). Researchers have rarely attempted to pinpoint the ideal bedtime for heart health.

When people's sleep schedules are misaligned’ with our circadian rhythm on a regular basis, it can have negative health consequences. That is, when people's hectic schedules force them to sleep at times other than those recommended by our biological clock.

How to Sleep at the Appropriate Time

The CDC suggests several steps to getting enough sleep, including:

• Maintain a consistent sleep schedule.

• Put yourself to bed at the same time every night and get up at the same time every morning, even on weekends.

• Get plenty of natural light, particularly early in the day (A morning or lunchtime walk can help.)

• Get enough exercise during the day, but avoid exercising within a few hours of going to bed.

• Avoid using artificial light, especially within a few hours of going to bed. (A blue light filter on your computer or smartphone may help.)

• Avoid eating or drinking within a few hours of going to bed, as well as alcohol and high-fat or sugar-containing foods.
