How does sleeping affect you?

  1. Memory: Going to sleep shortly after learning something new produces better exam results. Go to bed early for better memory recall.
  2. Metabolism. Chronic under sleeping affects your hormone levels. This increases appetite and disturbs your body’s ability to process and store carbohydrates. If you want to lose weight, make sure you’re sleeping well.
  3. Emotions. Chronic sleep deprivation increases stress hormones affecting mood and concentration. You’ll feel happier after a good sleep.
  4. Libido. Decreased sleep leads to low testosterone production. This means low libido in both males and females.
