To Sleep? Or Not to Sleep?

When it comes down to the count, how many hours of sleep are you getting each night? Do you hear people almost bragging about their sleep deprivation? There’s more behind the snooze than you think.

Additionally, your attention and planning abilities go way down. As a result, you get an unfocused, unproductive, grumpy individual. You don’t want to be that person, right?
