Lack of sleep can also make us look older. Women and men who sleep less than the recommended 6-8 hours per night over a five-year period could experience decline in their mental functioning, equivalent to seven years of ageing.

"Chronic sleep loss may speed the onset or increase the severity of age-related conditions such as type two diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and memory loss," says Sleep Specialist Dr. Alex Bartle. "Getting regular, good sleep is as important to our bodies as regular exercise."

Sleep specialist Dr. Alex Bartle says, "Sleep deprivation and sleep disorders are becoming far too familiar in our fast-paced 24-hour lifestyles. If you are feeling consistently tired and waking up not feeling refreshed then it is important to recognize there is a problem."
