The Effects of Sleep Deprivation

Hola all!

Any of you feeling sleepy? Even if you do not have a medical condition that may contribute to poor quality sleep, or lack of sleep, sleep deprivation is so common in our fast paced, get it all done now, society.

Do you know how sleep deprivation can effect you? So many people don't realize just how important sleep is to your well-being. Fact is; you gotta sleep. You cannot survive without it. Here are some of the effects that sleep deprivation may have on you!

Sleep deprivation can cause:

Depression: This is common sense, isn't it? When you don't get sleep, you feel like crap. If you consistently don't get your Z's, you feel like crap everyday. And then, the grand prize for your efforts...Depression!

Heart Disease: Yes, it is true. Regular sleep deprivation can cause heart disease. Don't believe me? Look it up for yourself.

Difficulty with social relationships: This is another one that just is easy to figure out. When you are sleepy, you don't really feel like being the life of the party, or even thinking about any kind of party. With continued sleep deprivation, social relationships can become severely damaged. Isolation is just natural when you feel so tired. It is also common with depression too.

I am not trying to depress anyone reading this, so I will tell you, there is something that you can do!!

Relaxation techniques, pain management, exercise, and avoiding caffiene and alcohol are just some things that you can do for starters on your own. Sometimes though, these things are just not enough.

If doing your best to create the best sleep that you possible can does not prove to be successful, you may have an underlying condition causing a problem with your sleep. If at all possible, this is the best time to see your doctor, and discuss your symptoms to see if you may have a sleep disorder, or another condition effecting your sleep.

OK, people I know this may sound like some public service announcement, but it is really serious! For more interesting effects of sleep loss, check out these following articles. Some of them are amazing, and some are just plain scary!

I am absolutely agree with. I think not getting the sleep we need makes us crazy.
It is hard to do better work and activities under sleep disorder suffer. Many peoples experienced sleep disorder but not many of them realized that sleep disorder is dangerous for health. Stay away from chemical pills and use natural method to get a sleep is the best way. Regards. said...
