No one wants to go to the gym when they're fatigued. And even if you do make it, a lack of sleep has been shown to negatively affect the effectiveness of your workout. Save money. One study showed that sleep-deprived people make riskier and poorer financial decisions. By getting enough zzz's, you'll get on track to make better money choices (and ditch the $5 a day coffee habit!)
