Assessor’s Comment

Thank you indeed for writing this essay. Both problems caused by lack of sleep and potential remedies are addressed. The essay presents the idea that lack of sleep causes anxiety at work and strains relationships. The essay is organized into two main paragraphs, one for problems and one for solutions, providing a clear structure. Some sentence structures could be refined for smoother transitions between ideas. A good range of vocabulary is used to express ideas, but there are instances of repetition ("lack of sleep" and "anxious" are repeated). On top of this, the number of errors is significant, a couple of them can cause confusion for the reader. The essay demonstrates control over basic grammar, but there are instances of grammatical errors ("freshed" instead of "refreshed," "they would miss a close relation" is awkward). The sentence structure is generally clear but could be more varied for greater complexity. The response adequately addresses the prompt, but improvements in nuance, vocabulary diversity, and grammatical accuracy would elevate the essay. Consider refining sentence structures and incorporating a wider range of expressions for a more polished presentation. Here’s a good read:

In contemporary times, a prevalent grievance among many is the struggle to attain sufficient sleep. This issue not only affects individuals but also raises concerns regarding its repercussions and potential solutions.
The dearth of adequate sleep can trigger a myriad of problems. Primarily, it negatively impacts physical health, increasing the risk of various ailments such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and weakened immune function. Moreover, cognitive abilities and mental well-being suffer, leading to difficulties in concentration, memory impairment, mood disturbances, and heightened stress levels. Prolonged sleep deprivation may exacerbate mental health conditions like anxiety and depression, further compromising overall well-being.
Addressing the issue of insufficient sleep necessitates multifaceted approaches. Firstly, cultivating good sleep hygiene habits is crucial, involving maintaining a consistent sleep schedule, creating a conducive sleep environment, and avoiding stimulants or electronic devices before bedtime. Additionally, promoting awareness about the importance of sleep and its impact on health through educational campaigns can encourage behavioral changes. Employers can also play a role by fostering workplace policies that support a healthy work-life balance, enabling employees to manage their schedules for adequate rest.
Furthermore, investing in relaxation techniques such as meditation, mindfulness, or engaging in regular physical exercise can promote better sleep quality. Seeking professional help when facing persistent sleep difficulties is essential, as healthcare providers can offer personalized advice or treatments tailored to individual needs.
In conclusion, the consequences of inadequate sleep span from physical health issues to compromised mental well-being. Combating this challenge requires a holistic approach encompassing lifestyle adjustments, education, and support systems to encourage better sleep habits, thereby enhancing overall health and quality of life.
