Skimping on sleep weakens your immune system, makes you more of a pessimist and increases your risk of gaining weight—among other recent findings. And yet more folks than ever before are dealing with the increasingly faster pace of life by staying up later and/or getting up earlier. More than a third of adults in the U.S. get less than seven hours of sleep each night, which may be one reason why drowsy driving, based on 2013 statistics, takes the lives of around 800 Americans and injures about 44,000 annually.
