Poor sleep habits are associated with high BP and obesity and low levels of physical activity.

In the study of overweight and obese black women, nearly half reported sleeping less than 7 hours at night, and many also reported daytime sleepiness. Women who had day-time sleepiness were less likely to be physically active and more likely to have higher BP vs those who had normal levels of daytime sleepiness.

The study authors suggest that efforts to manage obesity and high blood pressure should also address sleep quality (AHA Joint Hypertension 2018 Scientific Sessions, September 06, 2018)
