If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you are sleep deprived! We are a nation of walking zombies.

Sleep is a necessity- not a luxury. Most people need to spend nearly 1/3 of their life (219,000 hours or 25 years!)  sleeping in order to be well-rested.

Why? Because the effects of sleep deprivation can greatly impact your waking life.

  • Alertness
  • Mood
  • Energy
  • Thinking
  • Productivity
  • Safety
  • Health

The good news? You can get your life back.

Follow these Golden Rules to get the sleep you need:

1. Identify and meet your personal sleep requirement. For peak performance, that means at least 8 hours.sleepyhead_zzz_sleeping_stickers-rd2e345e1a2304040add01dd153ec5303_v9waf_8byvr_512
2. Establish a regular sleep schedule.
3. Get continuous sleep
4. Make up for lost sleep
