In today’s world of go-go-go attitudes, many people don’t find time to get a full night of sleep. After a short night of sleep we all feel the effects: drowsiness, a lack of energy and just not feeling up to our full potential. But what other effects are caused by not enough sleep?

From infancy to old age, the effects of inadequate sleep can profoundly affect memory, learning, creativity, productivity and emotional stability, as well as your physical health.” To see the full article click HERE.
