Thursday Tip

Despite what many people consider to be an unproductive way to spend your time, sleeping should be thought of as being incredibly productive. Sleep is absolutely paramount and goes hand-in-hand with productivity. Only with adequate sleep can you perform daily functions at your fullest ability.

According to Professor William Dement, a sleep expert nothing can change an individual's sleep requirement, not even caffeine. Caffeine and energy drinks merely prolong your drowsiness for a later time, but one way or another it will come back to you.

According to a Gallup poll, 56% of Americans experience daytime drowsiness due to lack of sleep and over one-third are dangerously sleep deprived. Therefore, you should never be ashamed of getting a little extra sleep.

So next time you think to yourself, "Oh gee I can't believe I slept in." you should take that as a sign that your body was in need of additional sleep.

Sleep is important. As a current college student I try to get on average 6-7 hours of sleep a day.

That's good, college students are most at risk of facing sleep deficits so it is important to get a lot of sleep. In fact, six hours even seems quite low (although everybody has different sleeping needs).

Funny, I have been getting less sleep because of my blog.

I added you to my links by the way and would like you to do the same.

Thanks.
