My most recent outing in the Sun newspaper, talking about sleep deprivation and how it affects our workforce:
A 2002 study done by the US Army Physical Fitness Research Institute found that these functions decrease by 25% for every night when there is no sleep.

A respectable 7.30 or 8pm was more often the case, and of course, the later one leaves, the more respectable it is!
Who cares if your brain is functioning at 20% of its usual capacity and you’re more likely to make mistakes that need to be cleaned up all over again the next morning.

If you don’t, why not? What measures have you taken to try to get a good night’s sleep?
