Too Hot to Sleep: How Uncomfortable Nights Can Affect Your Mental State

Sleep deprivation can do more to your body than simply make you tired. In extreme cases, it can cause severe mental problems from depression to irrational decisions. During the Virginian summer months, high temperatures can cause restless nights which can lead to these mental instabilities. Keeping your air conditioning unit in prime condition could improve your overall mental health by delivering the atmosphere you need in order to sleep well.

Compounding the Stress

Not getting enough sleep can be stressful enough on your body, but adding the discomfort of being too hot can amplify the condition. It can be difficult to maintain your composure during intense moments of any given day while experiencing sleep deprivation. Once the comfort level of the body is diminished, the effects of that stress are exponentially compounded. This makes it difficult to maintain rationality during various situations.

Concentration and Memory

Sleep deprivation can affect your capability for concentration and memory. This can adversely affect your career robbing you of the ability to make pertinent decisions. It can become harder for you to recall certain events or perhaps retain short-term memories. In some cases, depriving one of sleep has been similar to the symptoms shown by those that suffer from Alzheimer’s disease.

Keeping your air conditioning unit working efficiently will improve your general outlook on everything around you. By calling a Virginia HVAC repair specialist, you can prevent suffering from sleep deprivation afflictions and increased stress levels. Don’t live miserably simply because it’s too hot for you.

Good Sleep and Mosquitoes

To sleep comfortably without disturbance is all we wanted but there are times we can’t sleep comfortably because of stress, too much thinking, bad sleeping position and other factors that may affect our resting period.

Mosquitoes are one of the disturbances why we can’t sleep, they are so disturbing and mind bugging to have them around when we are tired and would like to rest well. Using mosquito nets would help but there are people who felt like drowning when there is something around them.

Anyway, since we slept in our living room using mosquito net is not an option because there is no place we could hang it, we used electric fan during the night but when the temperature get a little colder to sleep we turned it off, and mosquitoes are biting us non-stop. What I do then is to light a mosquito coil but it seems some mosquitoes are already addicted to coil because they can still attack me while sleeping. Lol
