Nefarious NapStealers and the Importance of Sleep


Image by Ed Yourdon via Flickr

According to a study at Harvard University in 2006,  because of the increase in people sleeping less than six hours per night, 75% of Americans experience sleep problems, if not full-blown nefarious sleep disorders. Normally, one shouldn’t be extremely worried about intermittent insomnia, which can occur for many various environmental factors. The real napstealer has to be chronic sleep loss, which causes all kinds of  health problems like weight gain, hypertension, and a weakened immune system. Therefore, people who don’t get enough sleep are not only sleepy, but can be fat, sick and irritable, as well.

The Harvard study created six recommendations to help avoid the influence of nefarious napstealers.

  1. Memory / Learning: Sleep allows the brain to assimilate new information to permanent storage via a process called memory consolidation. It has been proven in many studies that people who sleep after learning, perform better because the brain has finished processing that information.
  2. Weight and Metabolism: Ongoing sleep deprivation can result in unexplained weight gain because a person who is sleep deprived because of nefarious napstealers will experience an altered level of appetite-inducing hormones, as well as affecting the way the body uses and stores food, specifically carbohydrates.
  3. Security: Sleep deprivation accumulates, building up a sleep debt that causes people to uncontrollably fall asleep, even during the day. Falling asleep in certain situations, such as while at work in the medical field or other life and death occupations can have disastrous results.
  4. General Outlook: People who haven’t had enough sleep can be moody, impatient, irritable and lack the ability to concentrate, as well as not having the energy to participate in activities that they consider fun and important, generating an endless cycle of emotions.
  5. Heart Problems: Extreme sleep disorders can cause high blood pressure, increased stress hormone levels, and irregular heartbeat.
  6. Sickness: Sleep deprivation decreases the function of the immune system, which means the body can’t fight off infection, viruses and other sources of disease. Adequate sleep can help a person to overcome sickness more quickley.

    Just for effect.
    Oh DW you be a English Master, why do the words affect and effect have obscure meanings that can be used interchangibly with the other word. For instance, “I believe our foreign policy effects the situation” I linked the page that first threw up a flag on this issue. It is a safe clicky as always.

  2. Thanks for this insightful post. I read it with much interest.
    You are quite right to say that writing down your goals is Where do you get the figure of 3 percent writing out their goals? It sounds like the infamous Yale or Harvard study. This study was a myth and it discredits coaching and we coaches each time it is quoted, which is a great shame because the message of goal setting is – too to become the victim of an urban myth.

    Certainly not an Austrian perspective, Prof. McGahan even left her “Chicago” roots behind when she graduated (three times) from Harvard: PhD, Harvard University; MA, Harvard University; MBA, Harvard University; BA, University.

    One response might come from the “Amen” speech in Other Money because what she offered was not a business plan, but a prayer.

    I agree with her 100% that ethics should be integral to every course, because in terms of consequential human action, every choice is a moral choice by definition. (But for the many wonderful alternatives among flavors of ice cream, the phrase “moral choice” would be redundant.) She offered no examples of how to achieve that across a curriculum in business management.

    Much of what she said might sound nice, but even if you agreed with the goals, where do the resources come from, if not from the very investor profits she begs to abandon?

    Low thyroid levels correspond with an underactive thyroid and can impact in unexplained weight gain, fatigue, dry skin, irregular or faint sleep apnea, high or low blood pressure, chronic pain, constipation, frequent infections, brittle nails, weak muscles, head congestion and sinus problems, joint pain, hoarseness, and more. A low thyroid can be discovered by using simple blood tests. If you have low thyroid levels it is something to take seriously.

    Hi doctor, I am so glad I got the to know this website of yours. so informative… I love it. I have learned a lot even though this is my first time to open this website. I was amazed because earlier today me and my colleagues were talking about lack of sleep, over-eating and not doing any exercise. You see, I always sleep late even though there are no works oe deadlines to be done, I just sleep early. And most of the time, I only have 5-6 hours of sleep. At least now I know, still a way to counter the effects of chronic sleep loss.

Originally known as the New Yardbirds in 1968, they had a mild amount of success which changed when they changed the name of the group to a name that could their brand of songs.

  12. Yeah, well this is a nightmare situation that all medics are afraid of and that fear can often affect quality of care. Then everyone loses. From my experience, I am very suspect of any accusations that come from a patient with an altered level of conciousness, who comes with an accusation days after the event. Especially when the standard of care for a fall with loss of conciousness could easily explain everything. If he did it, fry him. But as a he said/she said case, I seriously doubt it will go anywhere.

    What if I have an NSOperation that needs to call back to some custom delegate (say a subclass of UIViewController) when some task has finished processing. In this case, my NSOperation retain? What if there are multiple NSOperations?

    Or does our delegate need to keep references to its operations, either directly, or through a mediator in between, to manage the operation.delegate nil when the delegate is no longer valid?

In my lifetime used ALL of these things to deal with both physical issues (recovering from a very bad car accident), emotional issues (same as above as well as numerous others), and my sleep problems. While I finally did to medication for the sleep problems I never would have made it as long as I did or need as limited of an amount of medication that I do without taking some of my process into my own mind. Which I do on a regular basis. Anything that advocates the mind over body approach is looking into, and like you said, what have you got to lose? 🙂

    I recently found out that before the age of two I was medicated for insomnia. It kind of pisses me off that I was, as I was younger than the age of two, and children can be hyperactive with really disturbed sleep as toddlers.

    So I wonder if my issues are initially triggered by having been given strong medications at a very early age.

    I developed major psychological problems in my teens. Was diagnosed Bipolar at 22, and then I have been given a bunch of different diagnosis since then, and now I have stopped bothering with the doctors.

    I get intermittent insomnia, and seemed to have had the worst of it when I was in my early 20's.

  66. sceptical about this method of learning, even though it has been said that there has been research taken out that “proves” that listening to learning material while sleeping is an effective method, I still think I buy into the idea. It seems too much like hypnosis (which is something else sceptical about). I agree that instead of actually learning while sleeping, a good sleep is good for consolidation of memory. As it can be seen that memory consolidation continues during sleep, but then leads to the additional effect of memory enhancement. Thus, our brain performs better after an afternoon nap and much better after a full night of sleep (Stickgold, 2005)

    I am not familiar offhand with hypothyroidism, though if it indeed causes weight gain then this lends to Gary idea that hormones play a significant role in weight gain and obesity; and not merely willpower when it comes to eating more or less.

  74. This is in line with the basics of law- that people should “reasonably know” that consuming large amounts of Super Fries and Big Macs often is not healthy. It can lead to weight gain and health problems. This is a more than “reasonably known” idea, it is a world-wide known fact! Therefore, the the parents of these children who suffered from obesity and health problems have no case at all. The calorie counts and nutritional facts are not hidden. The parents were aware, and were the ones providing them with the food.

    Dear friends,

    The other at the Hombu, Sensei displayed a copy of the book full of pictures and texts by Sensei. As Doug put it, the general outlook of the book is the best published so far.

    With all the taijutsu techniques from the 9 schools published in it as well as many pictures and Densho (some from other schools not in the Bujinkan); this will be the best training tool for the Bujinkan community ever published in English!

    Take care,

  77. Hi there!

    Thanks for the question. Immune stimulating herbs an immediate, increase the general immune response. They are believed to act primarily by stimulating a increase in the activity of immune cells. These types of herbs are generally pulsed because the immune system will gradually adapt to the affect of most immune stimulating herbs.

    I agree with what you said about the immune system in a healthy body. However there are times when the immune function may be compromised – such as when the body is under chronic prolonged stress.

    A bacteria does stimulate a response from the immune system, but as I mentioned earlier, there are times when response may be depleted or compromised, which is when you can use immune stimulating herbs.

    I hope that answers your questions.

    Herbally yours,
    Spiraea Herbs

It would be interesting to see some stats on the percentage of homicides that are committed with stolen/illegal firearms, though I suspect such stats would be difficult to obtain.

    I enjoyed your post. It is honest and that is refreshing.
    I think psychiatrists often ask questions that make us curious. Maybe it is the nature of their profession. I guess we have to trust our doctor(s) as much as we can. I agree that communicating your thoughts on the matter is a good thing. I think the more we communicate our experience, because it is an of our health care, the better our relationship with a doctor will be.
    Thank you for sharing this of your journey.

Underneath, I posted what the tentative model looks like (click to enlarge). Would love to hear your thoughts. Fig. 1. During NREM sleep, abnormal structures may be unable to generate sufficient slow oscillations to drive the reactivation of hippocampal memory traces. These same structures may also be unable to facilitate normal spindle activity, preventing efficient declarative memory consolidation due to an absence in plastic changes. Decreases in spindle activity lead to failure in inhibiting sensory information from reaching the…

    Although the three parenting books I have read discuss the behavioral management of how to get a toddler to bed (e.g bedtime routines etc…), there is a gross underappreciation of how powerful sleep is as a behavioral modifier.

A person smoking will ultimately ruin and impact on their physical health and make it harder to exercise efficiently and live a healthy lifestyle. it can have lifetime consequences too such as longterm diseases such as lung cancer, emphysema and disease.

I think experienced a kind of “majority creep,” in our culture, whereby adulthood has been steadily revised upward for the last several decades. of this is a result of longer life expectancy and better health, so that 35 is now young instead of middle-aged, and “60 is the new 40.” The other it seems to me, is the youth culture. Acting young (or immature, to look at it from the negative side) is a thoroughly predictable side effect of our premium on looking young.

    Can playing the computer game “Tetris” reduce the build-up of flashbacks for trauma? A proposal from cognitive science. “Flashbacks are the hallmark symptom of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Although we have successful treatments for full-blown PTSD, early interventions are lacking. We propose the utility of developing a ‘cognitive vaccine’ to prevent PTSD flashback development following exposure to trauma. Our theory is based on two key findings: 1) Cognitive science suggests that the brain has selective resources with limited capacity; 2) The neurobiology of memory suggests a 6-hr window to disrupt memory consolidation. The rationale for a ‘cognitive vaccine’ approach is as follows: Trauma flashbacks are sensory-perceptual, visuospatial mental images. Visuospatial cognitive tasks selectively compete for resources required to generate mental images. Thus, a visuospatial computer game (e.g. “Tetris”) will interfere with flashbacks. Visuospatial tasks post-trauma, performed…

    Here's a news flash people: weight gain does NOT equate to pregnancy!

    I normally weigh around 110 lbs. I am blessed with a high metabolism, I eat what I want (including lots of carbs), and I exercise 5 times a week.

    When I experience weight gain, always less than 5 lbs. However, most of it goes to my stomach, so it sticks out, giving me the appearance that I am “expecting” something. But that mean that I am pregnant!

    I have been of the view that weight gain, which is clearly not a universal outcome, may perhaps be associated with the mental issues that often accompany ADT therapies.

    Depression, for example, can reduce the initiative to exercise — and of course the lack of exercise, weight gain, etc., then reinforce the feeling of depresskion — a slippery slope indeed.

    It would be interesting to see if there was any correlation between mental state and weight gain.

    Great question! Sadly, the multiple of 3 hours is a myth. Everyone has their own “sleep number” which is determined by your genes.

While you may not feel the effects of sleep debt right away (i.e., the next day), it will to catch up with you.

    Summary: Background: Healthy sleep facilitates the consolidation of newly acquired memories. Although patients with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) often complain of sleep disturbances and memory deficits, the interrelatedness of these symptoms is not well understood. Sleep may be disturbed in PTSD by increased awakenings during sleep, which has been associated with decreased growth hormone (GH) secretion. We conducted a controlled study in which we assessed sleep fragmentation, nocturnal secretion of GH, and memory consolidation in patients with PTSD.Methods: While sleep EEG was being monitored, 13 veterans with PTSD, 15 trauma controls (TC) and 15 healthy controls (HC) slept with an iv catheter, through which blood was collected every 20min from 23:00h to 08:00h.

    I cringe when I hear the word, frankly. It just reeks of rock-n-roll excess to me.

    Nathaniel, it is illuminating that you say “I enjoy the process of seeking for things”. You are right, seeking definitely IS enjoyable and we have to acknowledge this fact before moving on. Sometimes I wonder if not the idea of long-lasting satisfaction is the true problem. Actually, what is so bad with an endless cycle of seeking and disappointment if one remains aware of the mechanism ?

  232. You know I believe that kid feet padding their way to a loved room after midnight should always be seriously attended to.

    This is another story to add to the paper on freedom. Look at how the CRCT limits freedom:

    invasion of home routines
    time to play more stimulating games
    adequate sleep for three people
    personal hygiene

    It even creeps into a young psyche and disturbs her sense of security. How insidious!

    We need to have zero tolerance. time to strike back. Since my kids are older, I let them choose whether or not they wanted to go to school during testing. All three of them “chose” to go. You know why? The school gave them snacks and let them watch movies when testing was done. I guess I need to do a better job of educating my children about social activism.

    Thanks for writing this piece.

The creators of the study created a phone application that allowed the to rate their overall level of happiness and also indicate what they were doing at the time they logged their response. The study found that people were most unhappy when they were thinking about the future.

    And even the military is incompetent. You need wars to weed out the idiots – during peacetime, you get a buildup of bureaucrats, and that results in disastrous results during the early phases of war.

    I suspect the only reason we did as well as we did in Iraq is due to Tommy Thompson, who had real war experience in Vietnam. No disrespect to the leaders of Storm, but it last lont enough to result in _any_ weeding out of incompetence.

  266. I know rather late to the but… I think this is a great idea. Though if you live in constant sleep debt, this probably work for you without changing other areas of your life.

    Light (especially wave length, blue and green light) has a strong connection to the circadian rhythms, inhibiting the sleep regulating hormone melatonin and stimulating serotonin production.
    Many of us stay late staring at bright screens that may be actively suppressing melatonin production.
