People with healthy sleep habits, such as sleeping 7 to 8 hours a night and not having insomnia, snoring or excessive daytime sleepiness, had a 42% lower risk of heart failure regardless of other risk factors, according to a study published in Circulation. The risk of heart failure was also found to be independently associated and 34% lower in people who reported no daytime sleepiness, 17% lower for those who did not have frequent insomnia and 12% lower in those who slept 7 to 8 hours daily.
