Do you have sleep deprivation symptoms?
1. Groggy mornings: If you struggle to get out of bed in the morning and find it difficult to get going even after a shower and a cup of coffee, then you’re likely feeling the effects of sleep deprivation.
2. Red eyes, dark under-eye circles and sallow skin: They're all short-term consequences of a bad night’s sleep. Sleep allows the body time to repair, and to regulate proteins like collagen, which keeps skin looking youthful.
3. Dehydration: If you wake up thirsty, you may also be sleep deprived. Dehydration, whether it’s down to night-time sweating or too much alcohol before bed, can cause a disturbed night’s sleep.
4. Mental and physical health worries: Lack of sleep, night after night, can be a serious issue. The long-term physical and mental effects of sleep deprivation range from low mood and poor memory to heart disease and fertility problems.
