Famous businessman & pioneer of personal computer revolution Steve Jobs said, “For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the day”. Yes, deep and peaceful sleep is very important for the completion of our daily routine tasks successfully.
But sometimes, we experience such situation that we fail to get the sleep according to our body requirements, we face troubles to fall asleep and due to lack of nighttime naps we feel sleepy and fatigued during the work at the day time.
Sleep deprivation may have different causes including rotating shifts in our work may cause difficulty with our sleep time adjustments, traveling from one time zone to other, medical problems (i.e. cancer, kidneys problems, & respiratory problems etc.) and other biological sleeping disorders including Insomnia.
Sleep deprivation or Insomnia usually occurs because of the depression, anxiety or it may also be a post traumatic reaction. These sleeping disorders increase the susceptibilities towards the harmful consequences such as road accidents during drive, sudden temper loss, sudden mood changes, emotional problems, lack of concentration towards work, weak judgment skills and power, and can lead to other physical problems including obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart diseases and ultimately death.
A minimal sleep loss can be a cause of our low efficiency, emotional collapse, can lower abilities to cope with challenges and can also affect our relationship. A healthy and happy life needs a fit physical and emotional health and a sound sleep is the key of that fitness and ultimately of that happiness of life and thus we can say that the sleep is the necessity not the luxury for the life.
