I’ve only been discovering the many benefits of sleep within the last few years. I used to think the only downside of not sleeping enough was feeling tired. I’ve found it so interesting to learn that sleep is super essential to our health, mind and productivity in so many ways.
Some very good info can be found in the book, Sleep Smarter by Shawn Stevenson. Shawn says in his book, “The research is in, and it’s 100 percent conclusive: When you don’t sleep well, you get slower, less creative, and more stressed, and you underperform,” and “High-quality sleep fortifies your immune system, balances your hormones, boosts your metabolism, increases your physical energy, and improves the function of your brain.”
