    Introduction: Body mass index (BMI), heart rate, and blood pressure should be monitored regularly for maintaining a peaceful and healthy life. Thus, this research is done to show the effects of sleep on blood pressure, heart rate, and BMI. Materials and Methods: This study was conducted among 60 participants. They were divided into two groups. Group 1 consists of normal healthy individuals and Group 2 consists of sleep-deprived individuals. Electronic sphygmomanometer was used to measure the blood pressure and heart rate, BMI using the formula (kg/m2 ). Results: BMI, systole, and diastole of normal people are higher than that of sleep-deprived people and the heart rate of sleep deprived is higher than that of normal people. Conclusion: The BMI and blood pressure of both groups of people correlate with each other and heart rate of sleep- deprived people are higher than that of normal people.
