Waking up before sunrises could be linked to STROKE


According to a latest research shows that people who wake up before sun rises could be a victim of stroke.

Scientists in Melbourne, Australia, investigated the link between the time people woke up and various health problems.

They found that those who woke up before the sun rose suffered from "social jet lag".

This refers to the difference between when a person is forced to wake up and when they wake up naturally.

When the sun rises, the body's melatonin -the hormone which helps people sleep naturally - is naturally suppressed.

At the same time, the body's internal cortisol levels, which gives people energy, rise.

These hormones are disrupted when a person is forced to wake up instead of waking up naturally.

An imbalance of these hormones is linked to an increased risk of strokes, heart disease, diabetes and depression.

There are ways to reduce some of these risks, such as using an alarm clock that simulates the sunrise.

Cutting out caffeine later in the day and eating a big breakfast may also help.

The news about waking up early being linked to an increased risk of stroke comes as one Harvard psychologist revealed the one thing everyone should do when they wake up.

Amy Cuddy has revealed that before people get out of bed, they should stretch their body as wide as possible.

Alongside working at the university, Amy is the author of ‘Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges' - a book outlining the ways posture can influence people's thoughts and emotions.

Typically, people believe their behaviour follows their emotions, for example, when people stand tall and proud it's because they're feeling confident.

Amy's research suggests we can become more confident by simply striking a power pose or by stretching in the morning.

At a recent talk at New York's 92Y, Amy explained the importance of making yourself as big as possible - through stretching - the moment you open your eyes.

According to Amy, people who wake up with their arms stretched out in the air are "super happy, like annoyingly happy".
