I am sure that every human in the world ever make experiences of sleep loss. It has been usual in this era. The most reasons why people losing their sleep are overtime and playing gadget. Most of students usually also lack of sleep. It may be happened because they have not enough time to do their homework in the afternoon. So, they choose to do that in the night. Truly no prohibited to stay up all night. Only, if it always doing every day or many times, it can give effect to our body health.
Deprivation of sleep can influence our daily life such memory. It is mean that someone can lose their memory and critical thinking because of lack of sleep. They will be difficult to learn something. As result, it impairs our attention, alertness, concentration, reasoning, and problem solving. This problem can be more dangerous if we ignore this. Because one day it can cause Alzheimer. Therefore, People have to know how is important sleep. We need to sleep at night because of our brain need it to rest the nerves. If we not enough sleep, we will not be able to remember what our learned during the day or can cause Alzheimer.
The other effect is ages our skin. We know who people is lack of sleep look sallow skin and puffy eyes. People who chronic sleep loss will be look like zombie, they lackluster skin, fine lines, and dark circles under the eyes. It is also causes your body could not manufacture collagen when you are not enough sleep. Your body will release more of the stress hormone cortisol. This can increase amount of cortisol, then break down skin collagen also protein which keeps skin smooth and elastic. Phil Gehrman, PhD., as a sleep expert said that when we on slept, we would release our hormones as growth hormone. This explain to us that growth hormone will amount release when we sleep. Also helps increase muscle mass, thicken skin, and strengthen bones when we are young. So, if we less sleep it can influence our growth hormone.
The last, losing sleep can make us gain weight. It seems to be related with our feeling hunger and appetite, possibly to obesity. And according to a 2004 study, people who sleep less than six hours a day were almost 30 percent more likely to become obese than those who slept seven to nine hours.
