6. When You Don't Get Enough Sleep

broken image

You know, the morning after a restless night is stressful. It feels as though you are walking through a fog and your brain is slow to get moving (that’s because it’s true!). Science has shown that with short-term sleep loss you can experience loss of attention, fail to process information, experience impaired memory function, loss of creativity and cognition (the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses), an increase in impulsivity, and loss of empathy.

If that’s just short-term, what happens with long-term sleep deprivation? Well, your body starts to seriously struggle with everyday functions. You may experience a suppressed immune system and all that that includes, such as an increased risk of infection. One of the biggest issues you may go through is struggling with metabolic syndrome, a group of conditions—increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels — that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke, and type II Diabetes. You are also susceptible to an increased risk of cancer.

So, how do we cope? We reach for our highly caffeinated drinks, high carbohydrate and high sugar-type foods? There must be a better way, and here’s the good news: THERE IS!

One way to take care of your body during a rough sleep cycle is to nourish it well during the day. doTERRA makes this simple with Lifelong Vitality Supplements.
