The Importance of Sleep

According to the old rhyme, being “early to bed and early to rise” makes you “healthy, wealthy, and wise.” Unlike most “old tales,” this one has a lot of truth in it. Sleep, or lack of it, can have a huge impact on your entire life.

Everything from mental well-being to physical health can be affected by not getting enough shut-eye. When it comes to work, being sleep deprived isn’t only bad for productivity, but depending on the job you do, it could be really dangerous too, so making sure you get enough of the right sort of sleep is vital.

• Understand why too little sleep does you more harm than good

Taking this course will benefit everyone, no matter what job you have.
