1) You get sick : Losing sleep can impair your body's immune system and affect your body's ability to fight off illness. This makes it easier to get sick.

2) Sleepiness can lead to fatigue : Lack of sleep can make you feel weak, inactive and reduce your productivity most of the days.

3) You forget things easily : As sleep has an impact on learning and memory, you can be more forgetful if you miss sleep.

4) It kills libido : Sleeping 5 or fewer hours can reduce your sex drive by as much as 10 percent.

5) Less sleep dumbs you down : Lack of sleep hurts cognitive process in many ways. It impairs attention, alertness, concentration, reasoning and problem-solving. This makes it more difficult to learn efficiently.

6) You're accident-prone : You're 3x more likely to be involved in a car accident if you get fewer hours of sleep each night. Think twice before getting behind the wheel if you're not sleeping enough.

7) Sleepiness is depressing : Overtime, lack of sleep and sleep disorders can contribute to the symptoms of depression.

8 Lack of sleep ages the skin : Sallow skin and puffy eyes after a few nights of missed sleep. But it turns out that chronic sleep loss can lead to lacklustre, dark circles under the eyes. The habit of 7 hours of sleep every night is ideal for every adult. But having less than 6 hours of sleep is unhealthy to the body.

An ongoing lack of quality sleep can affect a person’s performance at work or school, their ability to function day to day, their quality of life, and their health.
