1. It Can Impact Your Mood
You know how grumpy you feel after not getting enough sleep one night? Imagine trying to socialize on minimal sleep for an extended period of time. (Spoiler: It’s no fun). Studies from Harvard University show that sleep and mood are closely related. For example, people who experience poor or inadequate sleep are at a higher risk for being irritable and stressed, while people who achieve the recommended amount of sleep are more likely to have their good moods enhanced. The same studies show that people who chronically don’t get enough sleep are at a higher risk for developing mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression.
