Is lack of sleep ruining your work day?

Get news updates:What's this?
May 27, 2008

Everyone is now caught up in a fast-paced life, trying to squeeze enough hours into the day to juggle work, family etc.

A natural consequence of this is that your busy schedule eats into your resting period -- more hours of activity equal less hours of sleep.

And so the cycle continues -- we drag ourselves out of bed each morning, baggy-eyed, dazed and utterly reliant on caffeine to keep us energetic through the day.

If this is your life, you're suffering from sleep deprivation -- you're not getting the necessary amount of sleep that your body needs every night.

And if you're suffering from sleep-deprivation, we want to know how you cope up with it!

What is the reason behind your lack of adequate rest? Is it your job, your family life, a new baby?

What steps are you taking to remedy the situation? Does it seem to be turning into a permanent state of affairs for you?
