Saw the "60 Minute" story on sleep last Sunday. it talked about how we are the only species that deprives ourselves of sleep, many times as a badge of honor. The various effects of lack of sleep were mentioned including some not normally associated with lack of sleep... weight gain, poor memory and diminished sex drive.
It made it sound like we ALL needed 8 hours of sleep. I swear on most days I couldn't stay in bed 8 hours if I wanted to. Certainly some of us can survive on less sleep can't we? I think I'm doing OK, sex drive included.
I usually feel good if I get 7. How about you guys? Probably should have done a poll but....oh well.
