What would happen if you didn't sleep? When we were all younger, we at times would pull all-nighters, but that gets much tougher as you get older! This sleep deprivation timeline from Mattress Clarity is based on scientific studies and personal accounts of those who have gone the longest without sleeping. It also goes into detail about what happens to your body and mind after hours, days, and even weeks of no sleep.
There are several unfortunate things that can happen to you if you go without sleep for too long, including an increased risk of a heart attack, decrease in your hand-eye coordination, decreased learning abilities, and an increased risk of a stroke.
These studies found that people who sleep less than six hours per night have a much higher risk of a stroke: 4.5 times in comparison to those getting 7-8 hours. These are just a few of several, along with increased blood pressure, dampened brain cell activity, and extreme emotions!
