Sleep deprivation indicators

You’re ‘sleep-deprived’ when you get less than seven hours of sleep.

We tend to ignore physical and mental signs of poor sleep. So why don’t you take some time to answer the questions below?

 - Do you wake up tired and go back to sleep frequently before finally getting out of bed?

- Are you slow or uncoordinated in the mornings?

- Do you feel like you take a long time to process information?

- Are you often cranky or irritable?

- Do you get upset easily?

- Do you feel unable to concentrate or focus on things?

- Do you fall asleep unexpectedly during the day?

- Do you consume more caffeinated drinks or sugary, fried foods?

– Are you constantly anxious and stressed out?

Did you answer “yes” to more than 5 out of 10 of these questions? Then, you are probably sleep-deprived.
