Find out what five health implications your lack of sleep
1. Accidents caused by lack of sleep.
Did you know that many serious accidents happen after people fall asleep behind the wheel? Even closing your eyes for a few seconds while driving could be the cause of an accident.
See how important it is that you stop regularly on long journeys and you swap driving with someone else in the car?
2. Is your lack of sleep leaving you feeling dumb?
The process of learning and remembering has a lot to do with sleep. You’re not only less likely to absorb information when you’re exhausted, broken sleep will hamper the sorting of the info, so this will probably render the info useless.
3. Serious health problems are a major factor of sleep deprivation
4. Your libido takes a knock
With low energy levels, and increased tension, it’s no wonder you libido levels are low!
5. Weight gain
Less sleep is associated with an increase in appetite and hunger. You’re also more likely to get up and munch something if you can’t sleep.
Sleeplessness and weight gain could be leading you down a road of serious health issues like heart failure and diabetes
