Sleep and Health
Getting good sleep is critical not just for staying mentally sharp, but also for many aspects of physical and mental health.
When people get too little sleep on a chronic basis, the risk goes up for many health problems. These include heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, and maybe even a shorter lifespan.
Depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts are associated with sleep deprivation, too.
Even over the short term, too little sleep can weaken your immune system making colds and other illnesses more likely.
