14 Signs You’re Sleep Deprived and What You Can Do
Chances are you know if you are getting enough sleep or not. That said, it is so important to understand the full effects of sleep deprivation and how insufficient sleep could be affecting your life. With technology, access to media and entertainment 24-7, ever-growing to-do lists, and seemingly endless workplace expectations, it can feel overwhelming, and sometimes sacrificing sleep can even feel like the “right” thing to do to get things done.
Here at Holief our mantra is prioritizing yourself. Creating healthy sleep practices and boundaries to protect your sleep is imperative to supporting your body and mind. We believe sleep is nonnegotiable and want to remind you that not only do you deserve rest, but it is integral to your wellbeing and will actually improve your productivity when it is time to work.
14 Signs You May Be Sleep Deprived
- Daytime fatigue
- Mood swings
- Lack of appetite or overeating
- Lack of focus or attention
- Difficulty concentrating
- Impaired memory
- Weakened immunity
- High blood pressure
- Weight gain

When we start to reframe sleep and realize it is just as imperative to our lives as food or even air, we can start to understand the level of importance of sleep and feel empowered to prioritize it. Many of the above health concerns can at the very least be significantly improved with proper sleep. If you are ready to take back your sleep cycle and improve your health, here is what you can do.
Take a good look at your pre-sleep routine, if you have one. When do you shut off technology for the night? Are you creating an environment that helps you to relax and wind down for the day? What practices do you have to shift from work mode to rest mode? For inspiration on good sleep practices, you can read more on the Holief Blog!
