Studies now prove that getting too little sleep might affect your health, your mood,weight, and even your sex life. Getting a good night’s sleep won’t give you immunity from diseases, but Insufficient sleep can cause some serious health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The health risks from sleep loss only become serious after a few years. A bad night’s sleep can leave you struggling all day. Studies have found people who routinely sleep for fewer than six hours a night have a higher risk of dying sooner than people of a similar age who sleep for seven or eight hours a night.
There’s evidence that in men, impaired sleep can be associated with lower testosterone levels — although the exact nature of the link isn’t clear. So getting a good night sleep is important for your sex life too. Studies show people who slept fewer than six hours a night for two weeks scored far worse on memory tests than those who slept eight hours. Lack of sleep can suppress your immune system, which makes you more vulnerable to infections. Lack of sleep can make you put on weight by drastically slowing your metabolism down, getting plenty of sleep might prevent weight gain. Sleep well and stay smart.
