(HealthDay News) — It may be tough to find enough hours to get everything checked off of your daily to-do list. But giving up sleep to get more done may do more harm than good.

The National Sleep Foundation explains how insufficient sleep affects you:

  • Reduces cognitive function, making it more difficult to remember, focus, learn new things, solve problems and make decisions.
  • Increases body’s reaction to stress.
  • Brings on feelings of irritability and moodiness.
  • Reduces reaction time, affecting school or work performance and raising your risk of a car accident.
  • Increases risk of developing high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.
  • Makes you more susceptible to illness.
