is the most important activity in a day.
Imagine how stupid nature would be if it had made us spend the third of our lives doing something completely unnecessary or even moderately important.
Two main goals for living beings are to reproduce and survive and sleep is one of these things that helps us survive.
Yes, we are vulnerable during sleep and predators can’t kill us without any problems, but that’s why we evolved to find or build a good sleeping shelter.
When you don’t have a good sleep and you don’t sleep enough, which is not the same thing, but it’s closely related since you can sleep enough and yet not have a good sleep, your decision making, your focus, your hunger management, your overall wellbeing goes down the drain.
Sleep is a time when we recover, learn and defragment our body and mind just as computers defragment hard drives and whenever someone advises you to sleep less just to do more, think twice.
There are people who can thrive on less sleep, but most of us need a good 7-9 hours of sleep.
If you sleep 6 hears for 14 days in a row, you would have same performance as someone who didn’t sleep for 48 hours.
Have a good sleep, go to bed at the same time every day and wake up at the same time every day. Don’t look at the screens at least one hour before going to bed and you’ll be more productive and efficient.
