NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS OF SLEEP DEPRIVATION ?
There are a number of reasons why some of us find it hard to sleep but it’s important to address it immediately because sleep deprivation can have some very serious side effects.
Both chronic and partial sleep deprivation affects not only your mood, but it results in daytime sleepiness, headaches, poor concentration and many more negative effects.
The hormone melatonin is secreted by the pineal gland in the brain, somewhere between 9 and 10pm. It helps to maintain the body’s circadian rhythm.
When it is dark, our body produces more melatonin, and when it is light, melatonin production drops. Learning how to improve and protect your melatonin production is important to your overall state of well-being.
“Sleep is your life-support system and Mother Nature’s best effort yet at immortality” says sleep scientist Matt Walker.
