Did you wake up feeling exhausted this morning? Did you hit the snooze button – maybe even multiple times? Did you have a cup of coffee – or 2 or 3 – when your energy dipped?

Now imagine waking up feeling fully awake, restored, and ready to tackle your day – maybe even without an alarm clock.

The consequences of insufficient sleep go way beyond simple fatigue. After breathing, sleeping is our most fundamental need, and lack of sleep has an impact on every dimension of our lives. Lower concentration and reduced long-term memory lead to diminished productivity. In a study of nearly 400 employees, researches found that sleeping too little — defined as less than six hours each night — was one of the best predictors of on-the-job burnout.

Worse, inadequate sleep has been linked to diabetes, cancer, and even early death.

Contrary to the way most of us live, sleep is simply non-negotiable. March is Sleep Awareness Month: the perfect time to make getting adequate rest your highest priority.
