Quite a lot actually. When I've had a good nights sleep of at least 8hrs I feel like a different person to when I haven't. It's after a good night that I realise just how much better I feel & how short tempered I am otherwise!
Well, I get very grumpy when I don't get proper sleep. I'm a 33 year old male, and I like my sleep!
Now, don't think that I am lazy! When I say that I like my sleep, I mean that I need between 7 and 9 hours on a regular basis.
If not, then everything seems to be a little off.
When I was younger, I could sleep for just 4 hours, or so. I remember when I was in my twenties when I went out a lot (bars and stuff...) I could still make it to work on time, and get by the day.
Well, I guess I am getting older! I really need to get a good night's sleep!
Good Question; I'm glad to answer!
If your brain is tired it will make you cranky and really ruin your outlook on life. Get some sleep!
Oh, lack of adequate sleep definitely affects a persons mood. How much depends on the amount of lost sleep and the persons normal or average, everyday disposition in the first place. It also depends on what the "normal" number of hours each person sleeps in a day.
For me, I need to get at least 4 hours of unbroken sleep between shifts. I work in a rehab center, so I can't have any crazy mood swings. It would affect my work too much if I'm in a bad mood, which has happened a time or two. So, yes, lack of adequate sleep does affect a persons mood.
most people dont now it but lack of sleep can actully cause you to go insaine it is very dangouris and can have very costly effects
I know that if I do not get at least 6 hours of sleep I become very irritable. I'm not in the mood for anything when I am tired.
Lack of sleep is strongly correlated with depression--while some say that depression causes insomnia, others believe that sleep deprivation could lead to depression. Either way, it's important to get good sleep! 7-8 hours per night minimum is recommended for adults.
How much lack of sleep affects your mood can be easily determined by whether or not you have early responsibilities in the morning, such as early classes or work. Depending on how attentive and involved you are in either of these places is a direct correlation to how much sleep you've had.
I only get moody when I get around 6-7 hours of sleep, but for some reason, whenever I get less than that, I am never moody...I am actually really awake for a while. Then I get extremely tired in a matter of minutes randomly. I don't get it, especially because I can sleep for an unnaturally long amount of time. I have even fallen asleep on stairs multiple times.
It damages a lot because I don't have energy to do anything it seems and I become annoyed much quicker.
Far more than I wish it did. I'm the type of person who feels guilty if I've slept for too long, and infringed on the productivity of my day, but it often leaves me underslept and in the long run, likely less productive than had I allowed myself to sleep an additional hour. (I never claimed to be the most rational person out there...)
As long as I get close to 6 hours, I'm good. Anything under four though, and I'm rendered essentially useless--always wished I was one of those guys who could run on a few hours sleep, but sadly, I'm definitely not.
