Many people’s favorite way of relaxing is sleeping, and when they have a free day or they are on holiday they tend to sleep more. Waking up at 7 am on a Saturday morning might only be satisfying when you realize you can get back to your dream because you do not have any work today. When asked about their favorite hobbies, some people say baking, some say painting, but some say sleeping.
The latter ones are actually hurting themselves when they sleep too much because both sleeping more and less than you are supposed to is not suitable for your health. People are sleeping in or simply getting more sleep than required risk suffering from strokes, according to a recent study. More than three million participants were involved in this exciting study between 1970 and 2017.
