I have been struck with the zzzzz sickness lately. I can get to sleep at night and feel like my whole
world is falling into (or needs to) the zzzzz world. If I start working out more often, this should be
better… (this flu is killing me!?!) Regardless, you can read about psychology today’s article on
how to get a better night’s sleep when you can’t sleep.
The biggest sleep robber of all, however, is work—the puritan ethic gone haywire in an era of global markets. To accommodate the relentless pressure for productivity, we’re sleeping less and spending less time in social and leisure pursuits; the resulting stress can steal away even more sleep. Consider this: We’re not only missing more shut-eye, we’re having less sex, too.
P.S. I have to agree, the last part should be more on top of our priority.
