The effects of poor sleep on your health (and the easy way to avoid them)

view original post

Sleep deprivation has been known to interfere with the ability to consolidate and retrieve information. Whether you’re just not getting enough hours of rest, or your sleep is low-quality, you’ll find yourself having more difficulty than usual with committing things to memory and recalling them.

Utilising strategies to repair your sleep schedule, improve sleep quality and sleep for longer can help counteract this adverse effect. A healthy dose of exercise, mindfulness and/or supplements can work wonders to improve sleep health and combat memory loss.

The effects of sleep on stress management

In today’s fast-paced world, stress is also a common companion, often fueled by the pervasive issue of poor sleep quality. When sleep is constantly disrupted, it can lead to high levels of stress.

Persistent stress not only impacts mental health, causing anxiety and irritability, but it can also take a toll on our physical health. If neglected, it can lead to health conditions such as hypertension and weakened immunity.

Not only can a constant feeling of tiredness severely impact one’s quality of life; over time it can also lead to serious health conditions including cardiovascular disease and diabetes, not to mention major mental health concerns.

Resolving the underlying issue will sometimes require significant lifestyle changes, and this is sadly easier said than done when motivation is low. This is where short-term treatment can offer the break you need.
