The Amazing Benefits of Sleep
by Terry Weber
brain;
reaction time slows down; ability to focus attention is impaired; your memory lapses
and your ability to think creatively suffers; you feel drowsy and you lack good
judgement in both minor and critical situations.

Studies have shown that most adults require six to eight hours sleep in every
twenty-four hour day. That is about one-third of our entire lives. It has also been
demonstrated that people who get enough sleep are more productive and happier
than those who do not get enough sleep. In short, the people who decide to be
well-rested by getting enough sleep, are the people who become more productive
as well as much better companions with family, friends and business associates.

Therefore, when you stop, or pause long enough to think about sleep, and it's
many benefits, you'll soon realize sleep is just as important to your overall health as
exercise, prayer and eating the right food.

Let me give you a personal example: As a creative person, I find myself in the role
of one who is constantly thinking about, coming up with and generating brand new
ideas. Because my waking hours are so interesting and exciting I used to think sleep
was a waste of time. There was a time when I almost hated to go to bed. The result
of my lack of sleep was that my work suffered, and my good ideas became fewer
and fewer. Then, very gradually, by trial and error I must admit, I became aware of
the many benefits of proper sleep habits. Now, I find that some of my most creative
thoughts come to me while I am - you guessed it - sleeping. When I am asleep, I'm
relaxed. That is when my creative subconscious thoughts can intertwine and mingle
with my conscious thoughts with no effort on my part. Amazing!

Thinking is always hard work but when I am fresh and rested, after a good night's
sleep my thoughts are usually clear and right on target.

So, if you want to live a more productive, happier life you need to pay attention to
the many benefits that can be yours during the hours you invest in getting the right
amount of sleep. It is a fact that rather than being a waste of time, time spent
sleeping can be some of the most productive hours of your whole life.

As Americans, we live in a
supercharged society where energetic
activity always seems to take
precedence over the simple common
sense awareness of our basic need to
get enough sleep. In fact, our active
lives can be so enticing, so interesting
that we get to the point where we
actually begrudge the need to slow
down and simply - get enough sleep.

Consider for a moment some of the
negative results of a constant habit

life where you never get enough
