We all know how much better we feel after a good night’s sleep. We’re more alert the next day, we think clearer, have more sustained energy, etc. In fact, sleep contributes significantly to an overall healthy life. Sleep affects everything from our health, sex life, pain levels, risk of injury, mood, weight, memory, thinking and immunity. Knowing this, would you really want to be operating in a sleep deficit? I wouldn't think so. Try to get at least 7 hours of sleep and stop staying up all night watching crappy TV or playing on your smartphone, it’s not worth it. And when it’s time to wake up make sure you do just that. I know it feels nice and cozy under those Egyptian cotton sheets, but it’s a false sense of comfort. When that alarm goes off, get up and get going - you have a life to live!
