I’ve always been a big believer in getting enough sleep. I think I lose about five I.Q. points for every hour less than eight that I sleep. I’ve always been annoyed by co-workers who brag about how little sleep they get.
Arianna Huffington agrees with me.
So does science.
It’s amazing how many areas of our well-being are affected by getting enough sleep. Emotional and psychological, intelligence and problem-solving, ADHD, and stress all make sense to me, but it also includes weight loss, healing from wounds, digestion, sex, and lots of other things. This seems like an easy, lots-of-bang-for-your-buck self-help technique.
All of this is just to explain why I usually leave parties around 10 pm.
