The first week of February is National Women’s Heart Health Week which provides an excellent opportunity to talk about the connection between sleep and heart health.  In recent years, research has repeatedly shown how important sleep is to our health and well-being and one of the most important findings is the link between sleep deprivation and heart disease/cardiovascular problems.  For women, who are often the first to skip sleep in order to finish housework, get caught up on work, or just find a little time for themselves in their day, there is no better time than now to understand how those small daily decisions may be impacting their future health and even their life expectancy.

Heart disease is currently the number one killer of women in America.  More women die of heart disease each year than all types of cancer combined.  In an effort to raise awareness and make sure every woman knows what she can do right now to take care of her heart, here is a list of resources outlining how sleep impacts heart health and why everyone should be wearing red on February 7th and doing everything they can to help the women in their lives get a good night sleep every night.
