Listen Up! Lack Of Sleep Hits Women Harder

Hey ladies — do you need a new excuse to get your recommended eight hours of sleep? New research shows that a lack of sleep raises a woman's risk of heart disease more than it does for a man.

The study even showed a significant increase in risk factors among women who get seven hours compared to those who get eight.

Whether due to their careers, families, or bustling social lives, women often find the goal of eight hours of sleep elusive. I'll admit that I regularly make up for a loss of shut-eye with an extra cup of coffee. What about you — are you able to find the time to make sleep — and your health —a priority?
