Not Getting Enough Sleep Can Be Similar To Being Drunk

Pulling an all-nighter to finish a report? An extensive sleep study conducted in the UK by the Oxford University and the Royal Society of Public Health found more health risks associated to a lack of sleep. The study covers how losing sleep is connected to cancer, obesity and cardiovascular disease. 

Another interesting finding is the fact that not getting enough sleep affects our body the way alcohol does. After 17 to 19 hours without sleep, our performance is equivalent or worse than that of a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of 0.05 percent. After longer periods without sleep, performance reached levels equivalent to a BAC of 0.1 percent - well beyond the 0.08% BAC that identifies someone as legally drunk. 

At Selenightco, we say to choose your ‘poison’ wisely. Honestly, we’d much prefer a couple of drinks – at home comfortably. in your Selenightco sleepwear of course!
