(HealthDay News) -- If rather than sleeping you're working into the wee hours, you may be doing yourself more harm than good

  • Lower ability to retain and recall information.
  • Difficulty learning new information.
  • Less creativity.
  • Less ability to handle stress.
  • Increased moodiness and irritability.
  • Impaired reaction time, judgment, thinking and coordination.
  • Poorer physical appearance.
  • Increased appetite, which can lead to weight gain.
  • Poorer heart health and immune system function.
