If you are not, then it’s not ok! Sleep deprivation, whatever may be the reason is sure to affect your health, performance, safety in the long run.

While sleep deprivation may be caused by medical or mental health conditions, for most of us its thanks to the stresses of daily life or us trading it for more work or play. Have you ever felt tired or sleepy during the day? Well it’s easy to just blame it on stress or the kids, but seriously, we may need to recognize that this could be caused due to sleep deprivation or a health condition.
