By Chass Armstrong

If you aren’t getting adequate sleep at night it can end up costing you more than you think. So, how much is poor sleep costing you? It may be more than you think. Of course, you know that a lack of sleep can cause you to be uncomfortable, have headaches, feel fatigued, and out of control, but on a scientific and monetary level this goes much deeper.

In a recent study, which was covered by The Atlantic, mice had their schedule changed to mimic that of shift workers. The result of this study was that along with decreased energy the mice actually began to lose brain cells – permanently. A lack of sleep can cost you brain cells.

This lack of functionality can also cost you in other ways. Fatigue can lead to a decrease in testosterone and a drop in sex drive. A lack of sleep can cost you your love life.

People who are fatigued from poor sleep area also more susceptible to sickness because their immune systems are worn down.  A lack of sleep can cost you your health.

If you are sick more often, there is a higher probability that you will miss more days of work. This not only hurts your wallet, but when you aren’t there to contribute to a company it can hurt your efficiency and value in the companies eyes. A lack of sleep can cost you your job.
