What sleep does for our productivity
1) Sleep keeps us sharp— going on six hours of sleep a night can reduce our functioning to the level of someone legally drunk
2) Sleep helps us remember, learn, and grow – our minds are buzzing when we sleep, integrating new information learned during the day, processing memories, and sorting the significant from all the meaningless stuff we pick up.
3) Sleep refreshes our emotional state- nothing can make us feel depressed, moody, and irritable like missing sleep. But sleep works like hitting the reset button.
4) Sleep revitalizes our bodies- sleep lowers stress chemicals in the body, boosts the immune system, and improves metabolism.
