Most students and adults are sleep deprived, causing marked reduction in their productivity, concentration and quality of work, as well as an increase in moodiness, stress, accidents, illness and shortened life span.
Several leading Fortune 500 companies and professional associations, as well as professional sports teams, are learning that it is neither “macho” nor smart to operate on less than the required amount of sleep; in fact, recent medical research proves that sleep deprivation literally “makes you stupid, clumsy, stressed out, unhealthy and will shorten your life.”
To be a peak performer you need to be fully alert, dynamic, energetic, in a good mood, and cognitively sharp. You must be able to concentrate, remember, make critical and creative decisions, communicate persuasively, and be productive all day long. None of this is possible without quality sleep. Furthermore, healthy sleep has been proven to be the single most important determinant in predicting longevity. It is more influential than diet, exercise or heredity-but our modern culture has become a study in sleep deprivation. We must learn to value sleep, yet most of us know very little about the incredibly varied activity that occurs during the course of each night, and how it affects health, happiness and performance.
