1. Oversleeping or hitting the snooze button
When it comes to sleep, the sweet spot is seven to nine hours. Sleeping for fewer than six or more than 10 every night has been linked to chronic diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and obesity, according to a study from the CDC. Another stressor on your body: Hitting the snooze button. Disrupting your sleep diminishes the benefits of rest, leaving you more tired than if you’d gotten up the first time your alarm went off, explains Dr. Yizhak Kupfer, assistant director of Critical Care and Pulmonary Medicine at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY.
