How bad is it really to sleep less than 7 hours a night?
Some us believe that sleeping that long is near impossible. You might work night shift, have a new baby, studying or struggle sleeping due to stress.
Some of us meanwhile can doze off for 5-6 hours and think your ok.
If you find yourself yawning more than usual then this can create long term health effects, such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease and compromised immunity.
We must stress that the occasional lack of a full night sleep won’t cause the long term effects.
