Our time in bed has an effect on our moods, motivation, alertness, decision-making abilities, reaction time, and creativity… in short, our ability to perform at work, home, or play. However, the majority of us have disturbed, restless nights and rely on caffeine and sugar to get us through the day. The eight-hour rule is obsolete, and a new approach is required.
