4 Toxic Consequences of Pulling an All Nighter
We’ve all decided to forgo sleep to study, to finish a project for work, sit up with a sick child, or even to go to a party. But you might find that as you age, you won’t be bouncing back as quickly. And if you suffer from insomnia or interrupted sleep but had to get up and function the next day, you’ll know how painful that is.
