Sleep Deprivation = Emotions

Friday, July 19, 2013

Is it just me, or is it that after a certain time of night your brain just turns itself off and emotions take over?
I was just doing my usual evening stuff - looking on SparkPeople, checking Facebook, etc - feeling pretty positive about life... then, BOOM! A shock of tiredness hits me & all of a sudden I feel super sad.
I better get some sleep so this "sadness" doesn't follow me into tomorrow & cause even more temptation for emotional eating!

    Lack of sleep does throw everything out of whack, including emotions. Hope you were feeling better today, and that you are able to get more sleep! emoticon

    Yep, happens to me too. Sometimes I get myself to bed or have a hot drink, other times I pig out. I hope you feel less sad today.

    Yes! When I get tired at night, I also get the snackies. Just this desire to consume everything edible in the house. That's my cue to stop whatever I'm doing and just go to bed.
