#teamnosleep and the revolution

Anyone? Yeah, us too.  But...why?  Work/study/children/travel/friends/stress, or probably some combination of those.  Between our increasingly fast-paced lifestyle, our cultural devaluation of sleep and technological innovations that make it practically possible to be UPALLNIGHT mean that sleep seems to be the first thing we cut in our efforts to get the most out of our days.

But the tide is turning; the importance of sleep to everything from how we look, to how we perform - in any arena of life, to how we feel and treat each other is becoming increasingly apparent as sleep research evolves.  The message is clear: sleep matters, and, according to some, so much so that nothing less than a REVOLUTION in how we structure our days (and nights, and our homes, for that matter) is under way.

We never really gave that much thought to the fact that we were a little tired...isn't everyone?  But  Arianna Huffington's call to arms is a pretty dramatic demand for a re-evaluation of not only how we sleep, but how we live our lives.  And so over the next few weeks, we'll be looking at the "why" of sleep importance, and "how" of sleep optimisation, always from the perspective of someone who wants to have her cake, and eat it too.  Check in and cuddle up for an expo of the world of Zzz.
