Sleep Deprivation: The mind and body both need to have rest in order to function and have a full amount of concentration the next day. If there is no rest, then the gray matter, memory, and elaborate functions of the mind will result in the person not being able to get through the day. Their mind will wander and they will not think through all the steps needed to get through the day.
