Sleep is vital. It is during sleep that the body recovers and the brain works with and stores information. Most part of all learning takes place during sleep. Besides, the stress hormone Stress hormones such as cortisol and norepinephrine are released at periods of high stress. The hormone regulating system is known as the endocrine system. Cortisol is believed to affect the metabolic system and norepinephrine is believed to play a role in ADHD cortisol cortisol (kôr`tĭsôl') or hydrocortisone, steroid hormone that in humans is the major circulating hormone of the cortex, or outer layer, of the adrenal gland. is reduced during sleep.
Lack of sleep leads to stress, which in turn leads to poorer sleep and can lead to anxiety, less pain resistance and as an extension, to depression.
