How Sleep effects your social life
Overwhelmed with attending several social events, it might seem as if you have more on your plate as you pass through your journey of life. This is because, when you were younger, you had fewer things going on in life, and you were getting more sleep at night. But as people grow older, healthy sleep patterns tend to diminish. This leads to a severe lack of interest in the things that used to be exciting. This includes your social life.
A lack of sleep can negatively affect us in a multitude of ways, such as those described below:
* You become more emotional: When we don't get enough sleep at night, it messes with our emotions. Over long periods of being sleep deprived, the emotions can really start to catch up with us. We get hysterical more easily and will blow up at small situations. This means that we become quick to judge other people, this can be a big deterrant in your social life.
* Trouble at Work: If you go into work without much sleep, then it costs you your productivity. You can end up doing poorly at your job, potentially costing the company money. This may cause you to feel more stressed every time you go to work because you are worried about making mistakes while you are tired.
* Less Sensitive: When your body isn't fully rested, it will affect certain parts of the brain. One area, in particular, is our natural sense of social signals. Normally, this sense works regularly for us, and we can pick up when a conversation is or isn’t going well. However, when you are sleep deprived, you are likely to miss any sort of social signal and will be less sensitive to others. This can make it difficult for you to hold a conversation.
