Insomnia … a word we associate with lack of sleep. The inability to get off to sleep, the wakefulness we experience at night when everyone else is sleeping, that concern when we go to sleep that we won’t “get enough sleep” because of an important day ahead. Sleep deprivation can lead to excessive stress, worry and even weight gain.
Missing out regularly on the recommended 7 to 9 hours sleep may make you feel more than simply groggy and grumpy. Your mental abilities may feel at a low ebb and can put your overall health at risk. Poor sleep has also been linked to a weakened immune system.
Sleep deprivation is caused by consistent lack of sleep or reduced quality of sleep. Your body needs sleep, just as it needs air and food to function at its best. During sleep, your body heals itself and restores its chemical balance. Your brain forges new connections and helps memory retention. Without sufficient sleep, your brain and body systems won’t function normally and can also dramatically lower your quality of life.
