What is sleep deprivation?

Sleep deprivation refers to the condition of not getting enough sleep to meet the body’s physiological and cognitive needs. It occurs when an individual consistently fails to obtain the recommended amount of sleep for their age group, which is typically 7-9 hours for adults. This lack of sufficient sleep can result from various factors such as busy schedules, insomnia, sleep disorders, or lifestyle choices. Sleep deprivation can lead to a range of negative effects, including daytime drowsiness, reduced cognitive function, impaired concentration, mood disturbances, weakened immune system, and an increased risk of accidents. Chronic sleep deprivation can contribute to more serious health issues like cardiovascular problems, obesity, and mental health disorders. Prioritizing regular and quality sleep is crucial to maintaining overall well-being and optimal daily functioning.
