what does less than 5 hours of sleep for 2 months do to you

dont think ive had more than 6 hours of sleep each night, mostly averaging 4-5 hours because of exam season :frown:

is there any long term risks of doing this?

I think for a normal health and fitness it is very much necessary for the human to have 5 to 6 hours of sleeping every night ..

I totally get what you're saying about the lack of sleep during exam season. It's tough, but it's really important to get enough sleep, especially during times of stress.

Not getting enough sleep can definitely have some long-term risks, like heart disease, diabetes, and mood disorders. So, it's super important to try to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night. I know it's hard, but maybe try to create a relaxing bedtime routine, like reading or listening to calming music before bed.

If you're still having trouble sleeping, you might want to talk to your doctor to see if there's anything else you can do.
