We do sleep for around a third of our lives. Sleeping is the best way to recoup a tired body and repair body cells. If we don’t have a good sleep we may get ill. Too much or too little sleep can affect people’s physical and mental health.
Lack of Sleep Will
1. Threaten your job
Lack of sleep can lead to daytime drowsiness, and poor concentration.
2. Bump up blood pressure
Bedtime is a form of relaxation. However, nighttime stress can be just as harmful as any tension during the day if you have disrupted sleep or sleep deprivation. Lack of sleep not only can raise blood pressure but also cause hypertension in adults. For people who are sleep deprived, stress hormones tend to be elevated.
3. Make you depressed
You may feel grouchy in the morning if you have a poor sleep. People who are chronically sleep-deprived are more prone to depression. It dulls your mood. It steals your memories. The REM cycle, commonly known as the stage of sleep in which we dream, has daytime effects as well. Your brain may spend less time in the much-needed REM state if you sleep is frequently interrupted.
A short nap may boost your mood and performance on cognitive tasks according to a study presented at the 2009 APSS annual meeting. You will have a higher risk of obesity and certain cancers if you are not spending quality time with your bed.
