Increased Stress From Sleep Deprivation - The Dangers
by Michelle H Smith
deprived of much needed time to be re-energized, it's also deprived of an
environment necessary to foster natural healing. Increased stress from sleep
deprivation can give birth to a number of physical, mental and emotional symptoms
upon awakening. These symptoms include but certainly are not confined to:

* An increase in the rate of illness
* Nausea
* Dizziness
* Forgetfulness
* Feeling sluggish
* Poor concentration or fuzzy thinking
* Poor judgment

Having experienced each of the above mentioned symptoms personally, I've
discovered that neglecting to get enough snooze time is not only dangerous to your
health but also to the health of others. One delayed reaction because of increased
stress from sleep deprivation can be detrimental.

The National Sleep Foundation estimates that sleep deprived drivers are responsible
for more than 100,000 automobile accidents each year. Getting 8 to 9 hours of
sleep per night is recommended and getting that recommended amount of sleep
time is not negotiable. However, it doesn't stop there.

Your quality of sleep is just as important as the length of pillow time (the sleeping
kind) you put in. If you're used to sleeping from 9pm to 6am, when that schedule is
changed and you get to bed much later, you will still wake up feeling not quite rested.
The reason is that your body was accustomed to start winding down at a certain
time and you have now pushed it into overdrive. A serious consequence of an erratic
sleep schedule is insomnia.

Forcing your body to stay awake not only increases stress from sleep deprivation, it
also reduces your ability to handle existing and future challenges that lead to stress.
By simply getting the appropriate amount of sleep, your stress levels will be
significantly reduced. Your body and mind will be in better shape to respond to stress,
thereby helping lower your overall stress levels.

When it comes to stress, the cold
hard fact is that nobody is immune to
it. All it takes to raise your stress
levels is the loss of a job, an illness or
the death of a loved one. However,
these events aren't necessarily within
your control. Since that's the case,
proactively attending to the things
that can cause you increased stress
and are within your control is of
major importance.

Reportedly, 40% of Americans are
sleep deprived. This is a serious
matter because when you don't get
enough sleep, not only is your body
