In a nutshell:

What Happens To Your Body When You Don’t Get Enough Sleep But did you know that the effects of sleep deprivation are more than just feeling out of sorts? It’s during sleep when the body builds up the immune system, processes information efficiently, and recharges before another day begins. As such, a few restless nights are enough to throw those functions and so much more out of whack. Things like a weakened immune system, weight gain, and even declined sex drive are just a few effects of sleep deprivation, which we will discuss more in the next couple of minutes. In addition, this video will also cover the causes of sleep deprivation and tips to prevent it, so be with us up to the last minute! Your immune system is like the main task force of the body that fights off infections and diseases. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleeping disorder that’s a common cause of sleep deprivation along with others, which you will find out later in this video. Anyway, OSA is also a breathing disorder that disrupts your peaceful snooze off, thus negatively affecting the quality of your sleep. What’s more, you’re more likely to get the flu when you’re sleep-deprived. But it turns out, sleep deprivation can make your occasional late-night snacking become a regular thing. So, if you’re trying to lose weight, then being sleep-deprived will surely sabotage your effort. Based on a study, sleeping for less than 7 hours a night can reduce your libido. In fact, a lack of sleep on healthy young men can reduce their testosterone levels by 10 to 15 percent. The overall mood can also go down as sleep levels decrease. Likewise for women, getting enough sleep is important for their sex drive. Sleep plays a huge role in the hormone production of the body. Did you know that at least 3 hours of high-quality sleep is needed for adequate testosterone production? What’s more, growth hormones that influence your height and overall growth are affected by lack of sleep. A study found that lack of sleep is linked to a higher risk of some cancers. Many years of overnight light exposure may decrease the melatonin levels in the body, a hormone that helps you sleep. Sleep deprivation is one of the reasons for having troubled skin. You’ve probably had a few hours of sleep for the past couple of days. Not only does too little sleep affect you physically, but it also has bad effects on your memory and learning. Did you have a bad sleep last night? Sleep deprivation even for just one night can already result in some major thinking problems. Feeling grumpy after a restless night is not so out of the ordinary. Causes of sleep deprivation In essence, sleep deprivation is when you’re not getting enough sleep or your sleep quality is a wreck. On average, adults should shoot for 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night. Getting less than that even just an hour shy can already lead to health consequences that affect your whole body. A sleep disorder like insomnia is a common culprit. It’s during sleep when the body heals itself and restores its chemical balance. This is why even a seemingly small thing like sleep can drastically change your quality of life, whether for better or for worse. With that in mind, it’s extremely important to sleep enough hours every night, which then leads us to our next point of how to get adequate sleep. 3. Avoid drinking coffee past noon or at least 6 hours before bedtime. Are you often sleep-deprived as well?
