A lack of water can lead to lower blood volume causing the heart to beat faster. This leads to increased heart rate and blood pressure which can be dangerous for those with preexisting cardiovascular issues
2021 brings a new start in so many ways. Your health may be one of THE most important priorities this year. Staying well amidst a global pandemic is difficult, but absolutely essential. BTC wants to help jumpstart you in 2021.
With a new year of medical benefits beginning and a healthcare savings plan reloaded, NOW is the perfect time to prioritize your overall health!
On this year’s road to wellness, we will help you build healthy habits with sustainable intention. Each month, we will focus on one healthy habit that will help you MOVE BETTER, FEEL BETTER, AND BE BETTER so you can embrace life in the coming year. First up…sleep.
The CDC recommends that adults get 7 hours of sleep per night. Consistently failing to meet that goal can result in:
- Increased risk of cardiovascular disease
- Memory loss
- Slowed reaction times
- High blood pressure
Getting enough sleep is as important to our overall health as getting enough air, proper nutrition, or exercise. Improved quality of sleep actually boosts your immune system and helps you fight off disease, and during a pandemic, we need all the help we can get!
We challenge you to improve your sleep regularity by setting a consistent bedtime and wake up time.
