Side Effects of Not Sleeping
Lack of sleep can be very dangerous to our health. Whether lack of sleep is due to our own doing like stay out late at night or to a sleep disorder it must be taken care of as soon as possible. My sister once told me before, I can't remember all what she said but I think the body, rather the organs of the body has a specific time to heal while you are sleeping. That's one of the reason why there is night and day. A certain organ in our bodies correspond to a certain time in the night for healing. I remember what my sister said the early hours just before dawn has something to do with healing of the lungs, but the early part of the night like before midnight is responsible for the kidneys. That's why people is supposed to sleep at or before10 PM.
Many people have sleep disorder without knowing it, they assume that the cause is their noisy children, or because of so many problems, so their illness is left untreated. And this could cause more problems for them.
People deprived of sleep tends to be:
- cognitively impaired - they are less alert and seems there heads are on the clouds.
And because you will be unable to think straight when you are very sleepy, this will affect your daily life, your work, your personal life, and also your driving skill. And you'll be a danger to the public while driving just like DUI. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety the estimated number of car crashes every year caused by drowsy driving is about 100,000.
Long time sleep deprivation can cause more illness such as:
- high blood pressure
- heart attack
- depression or mood disorder
- mental impairment
- lowered immune system
I will also add that, based on my own experience, not having enough sleep causes my immune system to drop and I have experienced most of the above mentioned, except heart attack, (thank God!) plus I develop a thyroid deficiency.
So guys not being able to sleep well in the night is really bad for the body. So if you ever couldn't sleep in the night you have to try to sleep in the daytime.
So I hope to see you all in my next hub, Stay tuned.
One of the reasons why I am starting this hub is because, it’s my way of expressing my own journey from a beginner (0) to expert (hero) hopefully, in the field of online business. So welcome fellow beginners!
