If you can’t recall the last time that you woke up naturally without an alarm clock, feeling refreshed
You may have a problem.
Here are the consequences of leeping less than six or even 7 hours a night consistently:
It wrecks havoc on your immune system, more than doubling your risk of having cancer
It is a key lifestyle factor in determining wheter or not you will develop Alzheimer’s disease
One week of inadequate sleep, and even moderate reductions will disrupt blood sugars to a level that you could be classified as pre-diabetic.
It will even increase the likelihood of coronary arteries becoming blocked, putting you right onto the path of developing a cardiovascular disease, a stroke and finally, heart failure.
Sleep disruption further contributes to all major psychiatric conditions, so you are more likely to develop depression, anxiety and much more.
Sleeping too little will make your body gather concentrations of the infamous hormone grelin, a hormone that makes you hungrier, so even when you are full, you will keep eating, and as a result, you will put up some pounds.
In summary, the less you sleep, the less you’ll live.
