We recently asked Mamalettes about the activities they engage on a typical weekday.
The results of our survey shows that only 40% of Nigerian mums get the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep everyday.
Why does this matter?
Study after study has revealed that people who do not get enough sleep are at greater risk for a number of diseases and health problems.
For example, getting less than five hours of sleep per night may double your risk of heart disease, heart attack, and/or stroke. Research has also found a persistent link between lack of sleep and weight gain, insulin resistance, and diabetes.
