magazineguy:
Whether one’s physical or economic activities are involved or not, the need for sleep cannot be over-accentuated. For one of the reasons that it is necessary to living a healthy life, sleep also plays a role in the balance to a mental health. I can also tell you that having to work late into the night is not encouraging for a good sleep pattern. A deficiency in sleep is known as ‘sleep deprivation’. Sleep deprivation can be acute or chronic condition. Now, this is especially dangerous: Chronically sleep-deprived people do not realize that they are working at a deteriorated level. In a circumstance that entails survival, it is likely you imagine the many diverse reasons why you might suffer from inadequate sleep such as strange environments, rise in responsibilities, tiredness from activities and accumulation from previous stress will combine to largely soar the prevalence of this medical issue.

Sleep deprivation can pose a threat to the brain function. There are noticeable negative effects on awakening and performance which are very likely due to a drop in activity in selective parts of the brain associated in advanced thought processes. Thus, you may become incapable of placing events into their proper perspective and taking the right measure. This questions one’s addition to a survival group. This transpires to reason that a good number of car accidents and workplace hazards are caused by lack of sleep. When you do not sleep for the right number of hours, recovery is delayed and the increased amount of muscle passivity leads to the corresponding value of physical injury.

Besides the repercussions of the events occurring in the brain, the failure to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night causes many signs and symptoms as named below:

Depression
Irritability
Puffy/bloodshot eyes
Tremor
Headaches
Disarray
Memory loss
Muscle aches
Hallucinations
Micro sleeps
Negative feedback to the control of Diabetes and blood pressure
Weight loss or gain
Other psychotic symptoms
The lack of significant sleep aggravates mood and decreases intellectual ability. Deep sleep is also necessary to allow natural enzymes to restore damage caused by ‘free radicals’ i.e. molecules amenable for aging and tissue damage.

The remedy of sleep deprivation depends on the cause. The best start is to consider a concept referred to as ‘sleep hygiene’. Sleep hygiene is improving the behavior to maximize the amount of restful sleep one gets.

You should consider:

Sticking to a standard bedtime (and even wakeup time)
Making your environment as comfortable as possible.
Avoiding Nicotine (i.e. tobacco, cigarettes), caffeine and alcohol before hitting the sheets.
Exercising regularly, but not before going to bed.
Eliminating as much light as possible in the room at bedtime.
Clearing the mind of worrisome thoughts at night.
Staying away from heavy foods for at least 2 hours before going to bed.

If I stay away from heavy foods for at least 2 hours before going to bed, no sleep be that.
Food na the sleep stimulant
I'm awake 2am cos the last time I ate was 6pm and slept 10pm.
I have all the time but can't still sleep well

If you like sleep "25 hours" daily, you will still die, perhaps even young.
