Nothing throws off your day like a lack of sleep the night before. It ruins your concentration, makes you impatient, cause memory lapses and worse. Over the long term, sleep deprivation can lead to depression, diabetes, hypertension and obesity.

It can also be deadly. According to AAA, people who only sleep six to seven hours per night are twice as likely to be involved in a car accident as those who sleep eight hours or more. Sleep less than five hours per night and you are four or five times more likely to be in a car accident.
