Sleep Disorders Center
Sleep reduces your heart rate and blood pressure. This nightly drop in blood pressure is believed to be good for cardiovascular health. If your blood pressure doesn't dip because you don't get enough sleep, you may be more likely to have a stroke or develop heart problems, such as angina, irregular heartbeat or heart attack.
Also, studies show that memory and learning improve when you're well-rested. The exact reasons why this happens are unknown. But it is believed that while you sleep, you may be forming or reinforcing the pathways of brain cells that you use to learn and remember things.
And—no surprise here—lack of sleep can make you irritable and depressed. Without adequate sleep, you can also have trouble focusing or paying attention.
