Time Magazine did a feature on Sleep back in February and I recommend it for your reading. One of the researchers highlighted the three 'pillars of health' that I often reference in my health workshops: exercise, diet and sleep. Here is what Matthew Walker says: "I used to suggest that sleep is the third pillar of good health, along with diet and exercise," says Matthew Walker, a professor of neuroscience and psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. "But I don't agree with that anymore. Sleep is the single most effective thing you can do to reset your brain and body for health."
OK, so there is something to think about. My sleep patterns are not strong. I'll have to pay more attention to that and look for other resources.
