“Sleep is the golden chain that ties health and our bodies together”

Thomas Dekker

When was the last time you woke up feeling really refreshed?

Do you often wake up feeling tired, weak or with a headache and/or body pains?

Do you have trouble sleeping or staying asleep all through the night?

Sleep is the body’s natural way of de-stressing itself and preparing it for the challenges of the next day by calming the mind and refreshing the body. It performs a crucial role in our health and overall well-being.

Simply put, your brain cannot function effectively when you are deprived of good sleep!

Often times, in an attempt to cheat nature, we may engage in certain practices which result in sleep deprivation, such as staying up to make free night calls, free night browsing, clubbing, watching late night movies, or reading all through the night because of an oncoming presentation, test or exam. To be factual, we may all have reasons to engage in one or more of these practices and lose a bit of sleep once in a while but when it becomes a habit, then you are headed for danger and it is one that comes with a heavy price!

Here are a few common signs and symptoms of sleep deprivation

  • Frequent yawning and stretching during the day at work or school.
  • Mood swings
  • Sleepiness
  • Memory difficulties/ forgetfulness
  • Impaired mental and physical alertness
  • Susceptibility to illness
  • Cognitive difficulties
  • Sore/foggy eyes (redness, itching, blurred vision)
  • Distractibility

When you experience more of these frequently or habitually, take it as a wake-up call to adjust your sleep pattern.
