Are you sleeping well? Let's find out. Here are 5 signs that you may be sleep deprived:
1. You Are Hangry all of the time
According to The Howard Hughes Medical Institute at Stanford University, people who sleep less than 6 hours a night are more likely to gain weight. Lack of sleep can cause a hormonal imbalance in the body leading to an increase in ghrelin, a hormone produced in your stomach that makes you feel hungry and crave junk food.
2. You Can't Remember Sh*t
Did you forget what you just read? Sleep deprivation can cause short term memory loss and forgetfulness. Take a nap and wake up sharp as a tack.
3. You Wake Up Tired
This could mean that you are not getting enough sleep or too much (really?). Either way, it is a major sign of sleep deprivation.
4. You Don't Want To Get Down
Don't want to have sex? This is definitely a sign of sleep deprivation. So the next time you think that 'he's just not that into me', maybe he's just tired AF.
5. Your Emotions Are Out Of Control
If you go from A to Naomi Campbell throwing a cell phone, there is a chance that you are sleep deprived. Lack of sleep can cause irritability and mood swings. Heads up.
