5 Signs You’re Not Getting Enough Sleep

Sometimes in this crazy world we might be pushing ourselves to the limits in the sleep department, which can cause health problems and affect your daily performance in all areas.

Below are a few signs you might be sleep deprived.

Your Eyes Are Heavy

If your eyes are heavy, puffy, watery, red, or have dark circles, you might not be getting the right amount of sleep.

Unexpected Weight Gain

When you’re not getting enough sleep your body’s hormones get all out of whack, which can make you gain weight unexpectedly.

You’re Eating and Craving Junk Food

If you are finding yourself lacking for time, you’ll end up eating on the late night tip, often craving junk food, which will affect your sleep patterns. Your sleep-deprived brain is more likely to crave unhealthy foods as well.

You’re Getting Moody

Moodiness is a common side effect of sleep deprivation. If you find yourself getting short with people, maybe you need to catch some Zs.

Lack of Focus

Sleep deprivation can often result in lack of cognition and mental capacity.
