At this point and time, I think that most of us know that we, as a society, are surviving on less sleep than we were even just a few years back. The proliferation of electronic devices, 24/7 email, everything coming at us on “smart” phones, and even 24/7 television has affected how much sleep we are getting. If you are “of a certain age,” you remember when most TV stations were completely off by a certain time of night. The static that showed up once a TV station was off the air became famously scary in the 1982 movie, Poltergeist. What is scary now is how little sleep many people are getting and how it is negatively affecting us.
In the article by Dr. Joseph Mecola, Why Being Sleep Deprived Is NOT a Sign of Productivity, Dr. Mecola explains why we are sleep deprived now more than ever, how it is affecting us, and what we can do to get more sleep.
