What sleep deprivation does to your body

Ever felt hazy and sluggish after not getting enough sleep? Most of us have encountered sleep deprivation in our lives, but what does it do to our bodies?

Being occasionally sleep deprived would make you feel awful, but being sleep deprived in the long-term is definitely harmful for your health.
