The purpose of the paper is to throw light on the depreciating level of sleep and the repercussion among the present youths, popularly known as Gen Z or the iGens. The mini review intends to bring the past researches exploring youth’s attitude toward sleep and understanding the factors that promote sleep deprivation. It was found that cultural, technological, and social factors are the potent reasons behind their sleep deprivation. Given the burgeoning size of youth and their indispensability, it is felt that the sleep-wake cycle and mindset toward sleep need to be corrected at the earliest.
