Expatriates with international health insurance may wish to ensure they have an appropriate amount of sleep every night, following comments made by one expert.
Social psychologist Dr Sandra Wheatley said "most people intuitively understand" that tired individuals or those who frequently wake up in the night are grumpy.
Furthermore, men and women have greater difficulty holding conversations and maintaining lucidity and this can damage their mental and emotional health, she added, noting that this can also harm someone's ability to maintain normal social activities.
"Fine motor tasks" are more challenging and forgetfulness is commonplace when people lack sleep, the psychologist continued.
Missing out on this vital rest "is a form of torture", Ms Wheatley stated.
The public should also avoid diets containing high amounts of sugar, alcohol, caffeine and processed food, as this can negatively affect sleep patterns and heighten a person's level of anxiety, Ann Finnemore, stress manager and hypnotherapist at Getting You There, recently said.
