“If someone told you that you could look younger, feel better, boost your energy level, and keep yourself healthy, wouldn’t you want to know how to do that? It’s simple, it’s cheap, and it’s as easy as getting a good night’s sleep. Your body has a built-in clock that knows when you are sleep-deprived and when you are right on schedule. You can’t cheat your need for sleep without cheating yourself.
Getting enough sleep allows your body to be a natural healer for almost every ailment that can affect you. People who are totally sleep-deprived find themselves down for the count. They literally work themselves into the ground until their bodies give them a reminder to slow down and get essential rest. Sleep is truly one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. Your body will thank you, your mind will thank you, and everyone in your life will than you , too–because you won’t be crabby!” Marilu Henner, The 30 Day Total Health Makeover
