“Missing out on sleep deprives your brain synapses, muscles, ligaments, and joints of the chance to reset and renew,” says Matthew Edlund, M.D., the director of the Center for Circadian Medicine, in Sarasota, Florida. This could compromise your reaction time, coordination, strength, balance, judgment, and mood. Research published in 2000 in the journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine found that going 17 to 19 hours without sleep—say, being awake from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.—can impair judgment and motor reaction time as much as if a person were legally drunk.
