The Sleep Revolution

These blinks are about the importance of a basic human necessity that we often brush aside: sleep. Getting enough sleep isn’t just about feeling better in the morning – it improves your work performance, health and even your personal relationships. Similarly, sleep deprivation isn’t a by-product of hard work; rather, it prevents you from reaching your full potential. The Sleep Revolution (2016) explains why sleep is so critical, and what you can do to get more of it.

“These blinks are a sobering exploration of the dangers of sleep deprivation and workaholism. They’re especially poignant today, where our studies and careers seem to demand more and more work and less and less sleep. I loved the tip about putting all screens away by 9 p.m. every night.”
