It is important that we go to bed for good night sleep early enough to avoid any discomfort while waking up in the morning. Going to sleep in the wee hours of the morning can be bad for your health and body.

Here below we have jotted down 5 major reasons why staying up late is bad for you:

>It Can Lead To Poor Eating Habits: Late-night binges are all-too familiar to anyone who’s pulled an all-nighter studying or going down watching videos. We start craving denser food with less beneficial kinds of fat when we stay up past our bedtime, which can ultimately lead to poor health.

>Could Be Linked To Heart Disease: What if you uphold a fairly regular sleep schedule throughout the week and just do the stay up late/sleep in late thing on the weekend? One study suggests you might still be doing damage to your health. Investigators called this sleep pattern “social jet lag” and linked its affects to heart disease.

>Could Be Making You Sick: Sleep is healing, as anyone who’s been able to sleep off a cold will tell you. We know sleep impacts your immune system. If you’re starting to get sick and aren’t getting a good night’s sleep, you may actually be making yourself sicker by not giving your body enough time to fight off illness or infection.

>Might Be Linked To Depression: People who consider themselves night owls are also more likely to report experiences symptoms of depression. This was especially true among participants who stayed up late and also had type-2 diabetes.

>Melatonin Production Can Be Affected: In relation to a lack of sleep possibly bringing about various illnesses in your life. The melatonin levels can go down for people.

So, go to sleep early without wasting much time.
