Benefits of Sleep

Decided to post this because:

  1. i'm sleepy
  2. reminded me of what xinyi told me over lunch (about the number of hours she sleeps) hehe
I'm a super woman ... 
Maybe i do not need so much sleep ...
Anyway, advertisement time:

The benefits of sleep impact nearly every area of daily life. While it may be obvious that sleep is beneficial, most people don’t realize how much sleep they need and why it is so important.According to the Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School, your body manages and requires sleep in much the same way that it regulates the need for eating, drinking, and breathing. Extensive research has been done on the effects of sleep. These studies have consistently shown that sleep plays a vital role in promoting physical health, longevity, and emotional well-being.

Sleep helps to repair your body.

Sleep reduces stress. 

Sleep improves your memory.

Sleep helps control body weight issues. (gosh - no wonder)

Sleep reduces your chances of diabetes

Sleep reduces the occurrence of mood disorders.

OK, good night all, i've 6 hours to sleep (still short of 1 hour!)
