The Benefits of Sleep & The Effects of Sleep Deprivation
Not getting enough sleep drains your mental abilities and puts your physical health at risk. Science has linked poor slumber with many health problems, from weight gain to a weakened immune system.
During Sleep, your brain forms connections that help you process and remember new information. A lack of sleep can negatively impact both short and long term memory.
With sleep deprivation, the chemicals that signal to your brain that you are full are off balance. As a result, you're more likely to overindulge even when you’ve had enough to eat.
Sleep deprivation can make you moody, emotional, and short-tempered. Chronic sleep deprivation can affect your mood and lead to anxiety and depression, which may escalate.
Too little sleep weakens your immune system’s defences against viruses like those that cause the common cold and flu. You’re more likely to get sick when you're exposed to these germs.
LOW SEX DRIVE
People who don’t get enough sleep often have a lower libido. In men, this decreased sex drive may be due to a drop in testosterone levels.
TROUBLE THINKING & LACK OF CONCENTRATION
Your concentration, creativity and problem-solving skills aren't up to par when you don’t get enough sleep.
Being clumsy during the day can increase your risk of car accidents and injuries from other causes.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
If you sleep less than five hours a night, your risk for high blood pressure increases.
RISK OF HEART DISEASE
Sleep deprivation may lead to increased blood pressure and higher levels of chemicals linked to inflammation, both of which play roles in heart disease.
Lack of sleep can affect your balance and coordination, making you more prone to falls and other physical accidents.
RISK OF DIABETES
A lack of sleep affects your body’s release of insulin, a blood sugar-lowering hormone. People who don’t get enough sleep have higher blood sugar levels and an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
