Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There is actually very little research available on the benefits of sleep. However, lack of sleep has been shown to increase the risk of various diseases, including diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, obesity, and infections due to decreased immunity. Not only that, people who are sleep deprived can also experience memory loss, disturbances in thought and concentration processes, unstable mood swings, decreased sexual arousal, and also disturbances in balance regulation and coordination. Furthermore, drowsiness and lack of concentration caused by lack of sleep can increase your potential for an accident that can even be fatal to life threatening.
Many studies show that the optimal sleep time for healthy adults is between 6 and 8 hours per day. Sleep is not only a matter of quantity, but also quality. According to experts, the best sleep quality is found in sleeping at night, which is between 9pm and 6am.
The habit of sleeping too late at night can cause the quality of your sleep to decrease, so the risk of health problems that can be caused by lack of sleep as described above will also increase. Not only that, even after waking up too late at night, you will tend to be unwell so that your productivity the next day can decrease considerably. You may not feel significant disturbances if you have lived this late night sleep pattern for a long time. However, slowly but surely, the risk of health problems as described above can lurk you.
Therefore, if there is no emergency that requires it, for example if you are a night worker, then you should change the habit of sleeping too late as you normally do. It is much better if you get in the habit of going to bed early in the night (say 7 to 9 in the evening) to get up early (for example 3 to 5 in the morning) and do your assignments, than you have to sleep late at night to finish the task first. By getting up early, your mind will be fresher and your work productivity will increase. It is not easy to get used to this. However, with consistency and a strong determination for your own health, this change is not impossible for you to do.
That's all for our explanation. For more details, please consult directly with a doctor or neurologist who deals directly with sleep disorders.
I hope this helps.
