Last week I gave a presentation on the importance of sleep for not only our students, but for all of us. That presentation can be found here. We often overlook the importance of sleep on our overall wellness, and for our students, how it affects their performance. Some may even take great pride in sacrificing their sleep for more studies or work. However, with new technology, we have learned that sacrificing sleep for better performance is absurd. Check out this website to learn more about the effects of sleep deprivation and this short video (also embedded below!) on why sleep is important. If you would like to go more extensively into the topic (which I hope you do), please feel free to see this TED Talk by Russell Foster, a circadian neuroscientist, entitled Why Do We Sleep?
