Get More Sleep

Get More Sleep
The U. Penn med school ran a study with 48 young adults and found that two weeks of six hours of sleep a night impaired mental abilities as much as not sleeping at all for two nights. Even more startling, the six-hour-a-night subjects failed to recognize how badly they did on the evaluation test, and they didn’t report feeling sleepy – they thought they were fine, but they weren’t. Many of us go through life with less sleep than we probably need; if you’ll pardon the bad pun, this study is a wake-up call. (Original research in Sleep, vol 26, p. 117.) (4/1)
