Russell Foster: Why do we sleep?

Oh sleep. Something that I love to get, but rarely ever feel like I get enough. In fact I tend to go heavily in to sleep debt, then try and make it up in a few sessions…it just doesn’t seem to happen properly. In fact watching Russell Foster chat about sleep is making me reconsider a few things in the world of sleep.

Five hours or less sleep each night generates a 50% chance of being obese, or at the least, overweight. It increases stress and of course negatively impacts memory. All things that I can see directly impacting me.

In the last 60 years we’ve lost 1.5 hours of sleep (on average). So how many hours of sleep do you get each night?
