The cost of insomnia or sleeplessness

Do you know what insomnia or sleeplessness can cost you?


According to an article written by Sherrie Bourg Carter, Psy.D. for Psychology Today, the loss/lack and poor quality of sleep can cause:


  1. Accelerated Skin Aging
  2. Brain Damage
  3. Genetic Changes
  4. Increased Risk of Stroke
  5. Decreased Bone Density
  6. Increased Risk of Obesity
  7. Increased Risk for Heart Disease
  8. Increased Risk for Cancer
  9. Forced Early Retirement
  10. Premature Death


The article cited the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reporting that 30% of American workers get less than 6 hours of sleep per night.


A quick search online reveals the World Health Organization warned of a 'sleep loss epidemic' as a growing concern in two-thirds of adults in developing nations.


Sleep deprivation has been associated with immediate, increased risk for industrial accidents, motor vehicle accidents, medical errors, reduced productivity, impaired problem-solving skills, and increased stress, to name only a few.


Researchers have now shown that what we do to our minds and bodies when we skimp on sleep doesn't just impact us in the short term. Indeed, the consequences are long-term—and potentially deadly:


We don’t recognize or admit to it, but getting less shuteye is ruining our health, happiness and prosperity.
