We tend to put off sleep when our body needs it most…
The body and mind need a certain amount of sleep in order to function properly; however, when life gets stressful or we have multiple difficult tasks to accomplish, sleep tends to be the first thing we put off.
We may feel like we don’t have the time to sleep, but the truth may be that we don’t have the time to miss out on sleep. Typically, as the amount of required sleep-hours decrease, productivity also decreases. It makes it difficult to accomplish even routine, daily tasks.

“My doctor said I would feel better if I got 8 hours of sleep a night. I know sleep is important, but I really didn’t think I had time in my schedule for that much sleep. We set some goals. I decided to give it my best effort. My days are a little shorter now, but I find that I am able to accomplish more because I have more energy. If I keep this up, I may even find some time to work on my much-neglected hobbies!” –Brittany, First Opinion User
