Sure, we all know how important it is to get a good night’s sleep.

But plenty of people — from busy folks to insomniacs — may not get the rest they need. And that’s bad; foregoing sleep can have a devastating impact on your body.

Here’s a sampling of the consequences of not sleeping:

1 night: Movement and focus are impaired; long-term potentiation (tied to memory formation) is impaired

2 nights: Oxygen intake is lowered; you may stumble and forget words

3 nights: Concentration is impaired; heart rate increases

4 nights: Brain falls asleep in 5-10 second bursts; hallucinations are possible

5 nights: Thinking and problem-solving skills are impaired; paranoia is possible

6 nights: Sleep deprivation psychosis sets in

So what’s the cure? It’s a simple one — go to sleep!
