Linking Social Jetlag & Cardiovascular Disease

“Cut that lie-in short

A study of how much 984 adults shifted their waking and sleeping hours at the weekend has found that, for every extra hour a person’s schedule shifts, there is an 11 per cent increase in the likelihood that they have cardiovascular disease.

The phenomenon is called social jetlag, because it’s often caused by social commitments conflicting with when our bodies want to sleep.” (New Scientist, 2017, p.7).
