Physical Effects of Sleep Deprivation
So what happens when you are sleep deprived?
Greater Risk for Obesity?
Sleep loss affects the levels of the hormones leptin and ghrelin

Leptin and ghrelin control appetite and energy levels
Consequently, lack of sleep can cause an increase in appetite and a decrease in energy

Result: higher intake of food, less physical activity, increased weight gain (Knutson et al, 175)

Greater Risk for Diabetes?
Immune system dysfunction:
increased white blood cells, especially granulocytes; means the immune system is working in overdrive when there is no infection present

Greater risk for hypertension (high blood pressure)

Greater risk for stroke
(Nordqvist, 2012)

too much sugar (glucose) circulating in the blood

Lack of sleep leads to insulin resistance, which means it takes a higher amount of insulin to bring down blood glucose levels (Knutson et al, 165)

Other risks?

How to improve sleep?
Scheduling and Time
Keep a regular sleep schedule throughout the entire week; try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on the weekends (Edelman, 331)
Keeping a sleep diary can help show what habits and behavior must change to achieve and maintain a consistent sleep schedule (Edelman, 331)

Sleep Hygiene
cause you to act as if you are driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08%, over the legal limit in many states
slow your reaction time, causing 20% of all vehicular crashes in the U.S.
makes learning difficult by impairing your memory and concentration
impair your judgment and decision-making
Fun Fact:
"An occasional all-nighter is part of the college experience. It normally takes 3 days to recover from one."
("40 amazing facts," 2000)
Sleep is cyclical process 24hr day- night cycle AKA Circadian rhythm

The predictable changing of body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, hormone secretion, sensory acuity, and mood depend on the maintenance of the 24-hour circadian cycle (Potter 940)
Keep your room at a cool temperature when trying to sleep: a fall in body temperature promotes fatigue and a decrease in activity (Edelman, 331)
Find a comfortable pillow and mattress
Control noise, temperature, and light in the bedroom (Potter 950)

Sleep and Stress video clip
Try to reduce caffeine and alcohol consumption (Edelman, 331)
Avoid heavy meals for 3 hours before bedtime; a light snack may help (Potter 954)
15-20% of people are diagnosed with insomnia will develop major depression and 20 times more likely to develop panic disorder
University of Pennsylvania researchers found:
<4.5hrs of sleep: felt stressed, angry, sad, and mentally exhausted
>4.5hrs of sleep: dramatic improvement in mood
Fun Fact:
Adults 18 years old and older requires
about 7-9hrs of sleep in order to fully function.
Fun Fact:
25% of the U.S. population report insufficient sleep
Fun Fact:
"Anything less than five minutes to fall asleep at night means you're sleep deprived. The ideal is between 10 and 15 minutes, meaning you're still tired enough to sleep deeply, but not so exhausted you feel sleepy by day."
("40 amazing facts," 2000)
Now don't fall asleep in class!
Fun Fact:
"Young adults' internal clocks are longer than 24 hours. That means, if they were kept in a dark room for weeks, they would awaken and sleep in cycles of 26 hours, They wouldn't be sleepy until 2am"
