It may seem like something not worth paying attention to since it looks like we spend every spare minute on getting some more of sleep, but the majority of Earth's population does not sleep enough. The thing is that sleeping the required amount of time influences a lot of processes in your body and when you do not get enough of it, the processes disrupt, and it may lead to series of bad consequences.

We have brooded upon the subject for a while now and decided to bring to your attention a list of five things that may happen if you are not getting at least eight hours of sleep daily. You should better pay attention to it now before it is too late.
