睡眠不足は私の健康に影響しますか?


37

この1か月間、私は大学などで忙しく、以前ほど眠れません。私は通常、1晩4〜5時間寝ています。

私はそれほど広範囲に行っていません(私は常に良い睡眠をとっています)が、睡眠不足は長期的に私の健康に影響を与える可能性がありますか?

In short, and according to the WGBH Educational Foundation and the Harvard Medical School Division of Sleep Medicine:

  • Lack of sleep can, in the short term, "affect judgment, mood, ability to learn and retain information, and may increase the risk of serious accidents and injury"

  • In the long term, it may "lead to a host of health problems including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even early mortality". (We are speaking about an actual sleep deprivation here)

They have published a complete set of articles about that, the entry point is here.

I would also add that if you're consistently getting 4-5 hours of sleep (instead of about 8) then it's counterproductive for studying. Aside from affecting your ability to concentrate, there's also the effect on memory, especially memory consolidation for instance.

As a grad student, I know that it's a constant challenge balancing sleep and studying, but I would still urge you to consider this.
