A reason to avoid all-nighters at all costs: Just one sleepless evening can sap emotional well-being. A UC Berkeley study found that 30 percent of sleepdepri­ved people suffered anxiety the next day, and half of them had distress levels akin to people with anxiety disorders.

Take no chances: Sleep with earplugs in a totally dark bedroom.
