Sleep Deprivation Can Age You Early

Lack of sleep can kill you big time and it’s a fact and not a joke. All those guys who take pride in sleeping just 4 hours a day, well by the time they reach 40, they would be looking like 55. If you want to look like an old man in your youth, then you can continue sleeping for less number of hours.

Just like Brad Pitt from “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” your skin would look haggard and worn out. Besides that, you have a high risk of contracting a heart disease in the near future. We have come across numerous cases wherein men and women have fell down unconsciously because of lack of sleep. Now medical experts say that you are reducing your age by around 7 to 10 years by sleeping less. There has always been a reason when doctors say that 7 to 8 hours of sleep for a man is must. This will boost your immune system and keep him healthy.

Less sleep will make your skin saggy and dark circles around your eyes will initially start to form. Fatigue levels are bound to be high as well and your blood pressure is likely to go high too. When your immunity is low, your overall health will be affected because of this and this will also have an effect in your mood levels. Your mental faculties are bound to go down due to lack of sleep. When researchers conducted a survey of various men and women who slept for 8 hours and 5 hours a day respectively, they found out that the folks who slept for 4-5 hours had lot of mood problems and their irritation levels were quite high besides having low comprehension abilities.

The 8 hour sleep guys were healthy and had a sound mental ability and they felt much happier too. Those who slept less looked old and complained of problems like headache, depression and heartburn. This shows that sleeping adequately is a must for everyone to boost your overall body performance.
