“Sleep is often the first casualty of our busy lives. But to pass sleep off as an extended stretch of downtime is to seriously mischaracterize it. During sleep, our bodies are intensely busy: hundreds of biological processes occur while we snooze, repairing and maintaining nearly every aspect of our physiology and psychology – all of which allow us to be more productive, alert and healthy. Getting too little sleep undermines our effectiveness starting from the moment we begin running a deficit – undermining metabolism, increasing stress, suppressing immunity and setting us up for a host of health problems.” – Experience Life
