We’ve all heard these saying “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” Maybe we’ve even said it a time or two.
That’s a dangerous attitude to have. Studies show, most people who regularly get less than seven hours of sleep just simply don’t know the damage that fatigue and sleepiness are doing to their bodies. Scientists say “Short-Sleepers” as scientists like to call them, have forgotten what it feels like to be well-rested.
Matter of fact, they say a person who regularly sleeps less than seven hours a night functions as badly as someone who hasn’t slept for one to three days. Not to mention, lack of sleep contributes to a shortened lifespan and health risks.
