Sleep Disorder Assistance
The short-term effects of a sleeping disorder can include fatigue and a lack of alertness, as well as short-term memory loss. Extreme long-term effects of a lack of rest can include cardio vascular disease and chronic fatigue. Both of these sleep disorders can affect your career and quality of life as well as putting you and your family at risk if you are unable to perform such tasks as driving without being drowsy. As an aside one potential symptom of a sleep disorder affliction or rest problem that an individual should seek assistance from a medical professional for is if they are unable to stay awake for more than one hour as a passenger in a car. This indicates a lack of alertness and possibly fatigue and is one of the symptoms of sleep deprivation.
In the not too distant past it appeared that our society did not place a high premium on proper rest. Even the recent tech market boom seemed to glamorize the lack of sleep that some of the high performing CEOs were getting. That appears to be changing however with the tech boom over and some prominent people from that industry even bragging about getting 8 hours of sleep per night. Many had bragged only a few short years before of existing on 4 hours of sleep per night and having to deal with chronic fatigue all the time. These young people in a young industry have obviously had enough of sleep deprivation.
It appears obvious that a proper sleep would lead to clearer thinking and higher productivity. This can lead to other more tangible improvements such as better health and a higher energy level. We would all benefit from encouraging proper sleep in our society and by having any sleep disorders that we are suffering from properly treated by a qualified professional.
