Problems Due to less sleep:

A study from the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that more than 10% of the world’s population is suffering from insufficient sleep. This lack of sleep has been linked to a variety of health issues, including diabetes, obesity, and depression. In addition to these common consequences, there are also specific effects on developers: Developers who suffer from sleep deprivation have lower job performance and higher rates of mental errors in their work. They also produce fewer lines of code in a given time period than those who get adequate restful sleep.
