Sleep is a very important natural phenomenon which is very necessary for life as it is the main factor in recovery of fatigue and also helps from the wear and tear of body’s activities during wakeful hours.

During daytime which is a typical wakeful hours, humans engage in different activities which puts the body’s system in action. Like a student reading for his exams is said to be making use of mostly his mental energy whilst a labourer his physical energy, and a Cyclist/Pedestrian his locomotive energye.t.c
After performing these and other activities for a certain period of time, it is very important to REST so that one’s body may fall into a completely relaxed state in preparation for another’s day.
However due to personal, work or emotional reasons, some certain people tends to sleep late, or even deprive themselves of sleep in which this can have deleterious effects on health.
=> For example, a student who have an upcoming exam might want to sacrifice his/her sleeping hours (that is; the time he suppose to be sleeping) for reading.
While the idea of performing activities through the night and sleeping hours might be beneficial, there are still some adverse effects attached to it if it becomes an habit.
Below are some of them;
