Sleep is good. Not getting enough sleep can increase the risk of illness, auto accidents, and even death. A growing body of research suggests that a lack of sleep also contributes to weight gain (most likely by altering the body’s levels of sugar and appetite regulating hormones).
Even a half-hour of lost sleep is enough to blunt your problem-solving and verbal skills, reaction time, and stamina.
