Sleep deprivation is a silent epidemic. Since the invention of the light bulb, we have increasingly had less sleep than our ancestors. We prioritize work, school, socializing, sports, screen time – just about everything – over sleep. Sleep is viewed as compressible, something that can be made up at any time, but rarely is. Most believe this poses little risk. Unfortunately, they could not be more wrong.
