6 Symptoms of Sleep Deprivation
At some point in time, everyone has experienced a day when they simply can’t shake the fatigue of a poor nights sleep.
Sometimes this can be down to a low quality sleep, or when the number of hours has been insufficient.
Either of these can have a profound impact on how we feel the on the following day (and days after).
Whilst we are all familiar the Zombie like feeling after a poor nights rest, there are some symptoms, which may be less recognisable that could be impacting your waking hours, such as;
Reduced attention span
Poor or risky decision-making
Lack of energy
Mood Changes – including feelings of stress, anxiety, or irritability
A person’s symptoms can depend on the extent of their sleep deprivation and whether it is acute or chronic.
