You're not actually doing anyone a favor when you lack some ZZZs. It causes harm for you, your health, and everyone around you.

  1. You eat more which makes you fat.

According to Chris Winter, owner of Charlottescille Neurology and Sleep Medicine in Virginia when we're sleep deprived, we always get hungry because your brain doesn't get enough energy from sleep so it seeks other alternative which is food. We produce too much hungry hormone which makes us crave more sugar and eat more fatty food which causes you to pig out! (via health.com)

  1. You're clumsier.

We can now blame sleep deprivation for our clumsiness because when you have less sleeping hours, you become slower and your motor skills become useless. You will also lack focus so spare yourself some embarrassing moments and just get some sleep. (via prevention.com)

  1. Your emotions are all over the place.

Because your brain is working overtime, it messes up your response to your emotions. We often get a bit irritable about every little thing when we lack sleep.

  1. Your skin isn't as radiant and you'll have those bags under your eyes.

  1. You're digging your own grave.

Did you know that a man died because he went 11 days straight with no sleep? He apparently binge-watched a soccer European championship and got really exhausted because he also had a full day's work, his immune system was shot and he was found dead in his sleep. (via time.com)
