Number 8: Lower Your Stress Levels
Stress impacts our bodies in many ways and too much daily stress can lead to early aging and health problems. Every time you get stressed out your heart rate rises and has to work harder. In order to lower your stress and your heart rate, take a nap!
Naps are extremely beneficial because when you’re asleep you don’t respond intensely to stress so your heart rate is able to neutralize and strain is removed off of your body. We’re constantly busy and sometimes napping may seem hard and out of the question, but taking the time to stop and nap every day can improve your health and increase your longevity.
