Sleep Deprivation

Master Your Mood

Now that I’m getting a good sleep in the outdoors, I began to wonder what effect a bad sleep has. Turns out, that lack of sleep not only affects you physically.

“Sleep deprivation … appeared to have the least effect on motor tasks, a greater effect on cognitive tasks, and an even greater effect on mood. (However, the average effect size for motor tasks is still considered to be a large experimental effect.)” —  Effects of Sleep Deprivation on Performance: A Meta-Analysis, June J. Pilcher and Allen 1. Huffcutt, Department of Psychology, Bradley University, Peoria, Illinois. USA

So I figure, not only can you not walk as far, and have a hard time figuring out where you are, now you’re pissed about it!
