What is sleep debt?

Sleep debt is easy to understand if you think of a concept called the “sleep bank”. When you get less sleep than what you need, you develop a sleep debt. You’ll make a withdrawal from your sleep bank. When you make up for lost sleep, you will pay back the sleep bank by making a deposit.

In a perfect world, we’d always get plenty of sleep every night, and sleep debt would never be a problem. Circumstances always arise, though, and the best you can do is take out a little bit and pay it back later.

But don’t worry! There are ways to help alleviate sleep debt that are pretty easy.
