How Can Sleep Deprivation Affect You?
Between modern technologies and the daily demands of life, it’s seemingly getting harder and harder to hit that golden number of 8 hours of sleep each night. Unfortunately, this new normal has lead many people to attempt to get by on just a few hours of sleep each night. While this strategy may work in the short term, you may be surprised to learn some of the ways that sleep deprivation may affect you. In this article, we will explore just a few of them.
As you become tired, you will likely have trouble keeping your train of thought and your speech may become slurred or disjointed. This occurs because the brain needs adequate sleep to regenerate and, without it, consequences will begin to make themselves known unless you take the time to recover. This could be as minor as appetite reduction or could extend all the way to depression or death. However, the longer this goes on the more severe the consequences will become.
Sleep deprivation can also play a direct role in facilitating weight gain because of the impact on hormone production. While hormones are a big part of being unable to lose weight in a state of sleep deprivation, added stress levels can also affect cortisol to make you crave carbs and quickly gain weight through bad eating habits. Unfortunately, this means that gaining weight quickly becomes a real concern if you aren’t giving your body and mind enough sleep to recover and regulate hormones each night.
