5 Sleep Habits To Cheat Death According to Boston Hospital

If you’re one of those people who says “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”,  you might find out faster than someone who is getting good zzzs!

But there’s good news! There are 5 sleep habits to help you cheat death according to a Boston hospital.

If you follow these 5 sleeping habits, you’re 30% less likely to die from any cause. (I mean, we’re all going to die, but you can put it off if you get decent sleep.)

Following five key sleeping habits can add years to your life, according to research.

Researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess in Boston report that the benefits of good rest reduce the risk of death from any cause by up to 30 percent.

Overall, life expectancy was 4.7 years greater for men and 2.4 years greater for women who reported having all five quality sleep measures, compared with those who had none or only one of the five favorable elements of low-risk sleep.

“If people have all these ideal sleep behaviors, they are more likely to live longer,” says study co-author Dr. Frank Qian, a resident physician at Beth Israel Deaconess in Boston, in a statement.

Previous studies have shown that getting too little or too much sleep can negatively affect the heart. It has also been widely reported that sleep apnea, a disorder that causes people to pause or stop breathing while asleep, can lead to several heart conditions, including high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation and heart attacks.

The study reveals that those who had all five were 30 percent less likely to die from any cause. They’re also 21 percent less likely to die from cardiovascular disease, 19 percent less likely to die from cancer, and 40 percent less likely to die of causes other than heart disease or cancer.

Scientists reveal the five key habits as:

  • 1. Sleep seven or eight hours of sleep a night

    I mean, if you’re scrolling TikTok, it’s really hard to get to sleep. And you know, there a lot to watch on HBO Max. But this is important. Leave your screen in the other room. It helps.

  • 2. Avoid difficulty falling asleep no more than twice a week

    This might involve meditation. Or someone knocking you out. I like the Calm sleep app. Effective and not violent.

    This does not apply to new parents. You’re just going to have to wait 18 years to start sleeping through the night.
