Go To Sleep!
The consequences of sleep deprivation go far beyond the miseries of fatigue and diminished performance. Decades of clinical research document that a good night's rest supports nearly all systems of the body, including: skin health and youthful appearance, healthy collagen formation, insulin levels already within normal range, healthy body weight, glucose levels, blood pressure, healthy cell division, cardiovascular health, and good mood. But a lack of sleep has the opposite effect. Scientist attribute sleep related difficulties to the unprecedented levels of stress most of us endure in today's society.
