We must prevent sleep more hours than those recommended (between seven and eight). More hours of sleep is linked to sleep disturbances that condition changes in cardiovascular parameters. In summer, the Spanish Heart Foundation recommends maintaining a good hydration, balanced diet and regular exercise. Some of the summer habits that a priori seem very healthy, as sleeping too much, both at night and during the day, can be dangerous for our cardiovascular health.

The research was extracted, those who slept five hours or less had one two times greater risk of developing cardiovascular problems compared with participants who rested seven hours.
Surprisingly, those who engaged in nine or more hours a day to sleep also rose 1.57 times your cardiovascular risk with respect to those who slept the best hours. Just enough sleep and exercising little sleep activates metabolic and endocrine factors harmful to health. But Dr. Lorenzo Silva Melchor, cardiologist of the unit coronary of the Hospital Universitario Puerta de Hierro in Madrid, recalls that Conversely, sleep more hours than that recommended may be related to disturbances and sleep quality that determines alterations in cardiovascular parameters, says the specialist. During the summer time, it is important to exercise but by following a few basic guidelines: avoid the Central hours of the day. Stay hydrated to compensate the loss of fluid caused by sweat. Do not overdo it with the diet.
