If you’re sleep-deprived, you’re life-deprived. Nonstop yawning. Constant fatigue. Low energy levels. Out-of-whack eating patterns. These are just some of the issues caused by sleep deprivation. But aside from these on-the-surface symptoms, what’s really going on when you don’t sleep?
For one, sleep deprivation affects the brain on a variety of levels. As the common saying goes, “Sleep more to forget less.” What about from a pure physical standpoint? In a study that tested athletic performance, those who slept more did better than sleep-deprived individuals. It appears that adequate sleep provides the body with a nightly healing process and cellular maintenance (called “autophagy”) that are absolutely essential to normal activity, let alone peak performance. The brain & the body – sleep affects both in ways too numerous to count.
Digging a bit deeper into sleep deprivation, it’s also been shown that not enough shut-eye also impacts the body’s ability to fend off disease, and also results in poor stress management. To put it simply, a sleep-deprived person is a broken person.
Chronic sleep deprivation occurs when this cycle never stops. It’s possible to recover from a night or two of little sleep – but what happens when this is extended over weeks, months or even years? Sleep deprivation is responsible for a range of negative health markers, as we’ve already learned.
And with 24-hour stimulation and round-the-clock entertainment options, millions of adults are wondering how to get quality sleep. One major cause of sleep deprivation is sleep apnea, yet the treatment might be easier than you think.
