It’s no secret that when you don’t get enough sleep, you don’t feel very good. Instead, you feel tired. It’s just the natural consequence of your brain and body not having enough time to rest and recharge. So, have you ever wondered what that means for your health? Furthermore, have you ever stopped to think about the different areas of your health that could become affected? In most instances, patients focus primarily on the simple fact that they feel so sleepy. For some additional help in feeling compelled to see our Livonia, MI team for treatment, consider the many ways sleep deprivation chips away at you!
Your Physical Health
Guess what? When you don’t get enough sleep because you’re really having some problems, you aren’t just going to feel sleepy. You are putting your actual physical health at risk! You have certainly heard this from us before and will hear it over and over again because it’s quite scary. Your body needs enough actual sleep free of interruptions every night or it begins to affect your arteries and major organs like your heart, as well as your liver! Avoid all sorts of problems that can lead to health scares and lasting concerns when you simply seek sleep disorder treatment with us!
Your Emotional Health
Now, for your emotional health. First, of course, there’s the fact that you will likely feel on edge if you are aware that your sleep disorder is leading toward health problems. Next is the fact that your brain cannot function at full capacity when it is not resting. Then, add into the mix that it may be deprived of essential oxygen due to trouble like sleep apnea and you have a recipe for emotional disaster! You cannot achieve mental balance when you are starved for sleep and rest, so protect this aspect of your life with treatment!
Your Social Health
This goes without saying but perhaps you have never considered it before. If you’re absolutely exhausted, you’re experiencing strange symptoms (like headaches), and you are all over the place emotionally, it’s going to take a toll on your social health (from close relationships to connections with colleagues). Treat your sleep!
