  • Using Orange Glasses For a Better Night’s Sleep

  • The Life of a Short Sleeper

    Though many of us like to believe that we are able to get by on just a few hours of sleep each night, it’s just not true according to sleep scientists. The rule of thumb is that we all need somewhere between seven and nine hours of sleep each and every night in order to function at the top of our game, and though you may think that you are the exception to the rule, the truth is that it’s just your brain playing with you.

Recent headlines in the news have included, “19 Successful People Who Barely Sleep,” “The secret of success: Needing less sleep?” and “Do history’s greatest figures owe their success to sleeping LESS?” No matter how many of these articles are published, science says that it is unlikely that the people who are bragging about getting by on minimal sleep are in fact sleeping as little as they claim, and if they are then they are part of an exceedingly rare cohort of people who are known as short sleepers. For the rest of us, the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep every night is exactly what we need. The good news is that more and more captains of industry have decided to speak up and give equal time to the message that sleep is a good thing. Continue reading
