How Lack Of Sleep Affects Your Mental & Physical Health?

by Dr. Sanjeet Diwan Best Psychiatrist in Bhopal

Most of the people out there need nothing less than seven to eight hours of sleep every night. But, some people sleep very little and experience no trouble due to lack of sleep. This is because we all are different. The system of your body works differently than others. The point is that some people are more resistant to sleep deprivation than others. However, for the majority of the people out there, seven to eight hours of sleep per night is a must. Else, it can lead to many physical and mental health conditions, including but not limited to obesity, heart disease, diabetes, depression, anxiety, stress and that’s just the beginning. In this blog post, we have listed down a couple of problems that you might experience due to lack of sleep. So, without wasting any time, let us have a look at them in brief:

1 – Obesity

The urge to grab chips and cookies at late nights does not just occur out of the blue. This is the fault of hormonal imbalance that takes place due to lack of sleep. The lack of sleep depletes the level of a hormone called leptin that fuels the fire of appetite in us and tricks our brain to make us feel hungry, compelling us to grab chips, cookies, and other easily available foods that makes us obese.

2 – Depression

Being one of the best psychiatrists in Bhopal, we would like to inform you that depression and lack of sleep go hand-in-hand. People, who go to bed late at night, for instance, after 12 O’clock, are more vulnerable to a bad mood, fatigue, and zest for life. Sleep deprivation makes our mental health weaker which often leads us to depression.

3 – Heart disease

The hormones that contribute to stress in our body are found high among the people who feel sleepy most of the time. The high level of stress hormone in the body is deadly for our heart as it can give rise to many irreversible heart diseases. Lack of sleep can also lead to high blood pressure.

Final Words:

We suggest that you take nothing less than seven to eight hours of sleep every night to stay on the safer side. Despite all your efforts, you are not being able to fall asleep at the right time, consider seeing a psychiatrist as you might have a sleep disorder.
