A repor says  that a 20-year-old Chinese gamer recently died after staying up late for months, live-streaming himself playing video games. The young man’s death sparked a broad discussion online, with many Chinese night owls worrying about their own sleep patterns.

Do you always stay up late?

Staying up late does not kill anyone of course, but if you combine that with getting up early, and not sleeping during day either, then the overall sleep deprivation can contribute to medical issues, some of which can be fatal.

And often in hobbyist (but not professional) gamers, lack of sleep is only one of many risk factors. Bad diet and overweight are probably bigger concerns for many.

On the other hand, professional gamers usually acknowledge the benefits of good physical shape in their work, and do not neglect getting enough sleep and eating balanced diets.

Apart from gaming, the ever-increasingly fast pace of life, rising demands on work, private/social life also result in people having less and less time for shut-eye.

Moreover, globalization requires people in different parts of the world to work in sync, that to some extend disrupts people's normal schedules for both life and work. For instance, if a conference call is set between a company's facilities in the US and China, then one of the parties would likely have to stay up until mid-night to do it. And after the conference, with new information being shared, new tasks being assigned, you may feel too keyed up to fall asleep. Lo and behold, Globalization sometimes brings about global problems.
I came across a news report the other day, that stated that the average time for slumber in the US was less than 6 hours a day, at least one hour short of the healthy 7 hours, give or take, depending on individual conditions. I belive it is more or less the same elsewhere.

Sometimes, you may want to slow down, let things go, but the environment or your aspiration just doesn't allow you.

Believe it or not, it's true.
