We all know we need to get enough sleep to stay healthy, but you may not know that insomnia takes a toll on your wallet, according to News 8 WTNH.

You go to work, make money and pay your bills on time to keep your finances in check. But experts say another important step to managing money is sleep! “Not getting the right amount of sleep or the right kind of sleep can actually interfere with your ability to earn a living,” said Meir Kryger.

Meir Kryger is a Yale professor and physician at the Sleep Disorder Center in North Haven where people try to improve their sleep habits. It’s recommended you get between 7 and 9 hours a night but there are large groups of people who don’t. People suffering from chronic sleep disorders, shift workers and of course new moms.
