Oh I'm sure its nothing.

In the short term:

Decreased Performance and Alertness: Sleep deprivation induces significant reductions in performance and alertness. Reducing your nighttime sleep by as little as one and a half hours for just one night could result in a reduction of daytime alertness by as much as 32%.

Memory and Cognitive Impairment: Decreased alertness and excessive daytime sleepiness impair your memory and your cognitive ability -- your ability to think and process information.

Stress Relationships: Disruption of a bed partner's sleep due to a sleep disorder may cause significant problems for the relationship (for example, separate bedrooms, conflicts, moodiness, etc.).

Poor Quality of Life: You might, for example, be unable to participate in certain activities that require sustained attention, like going to the movies, seeing your child in a school play, or watching a favorite TV show.

Occupational Injury: Excessive sleepiness also contributes to a greater than twofold higher risk of sustaining an occupational injury.

Automobile Injury: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates conservatively that each year drowsy driving is responsible for at least 100,000 automobile crashes, 71,000 injuries, and 1,550 fatalities.

The good news for many of the disorders that cause sleep deprivation is that after risk assessment, education, and treatment, memory and cognitive deficits improve and the number of injuries decreases.

In the long term, the clinical consequences of untreated sleep disorders are large indeed. They are associated with numerous, serious medical illnesses, including:

High blood pressure
Heart attack
Heart failure
Stroke
Obesity
Psychiatric problems, including depression and other mood disorders
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Mental impairment
Fetal and childhood growth retardation
Injury from accidents
Disruption of bed partner's sleep quality
Poor quality of life


Some researchers suggest that sleep deprivation should be recognized with the same seriousness that has been associated with the societal impact of alcohol.



I think its hilarious that a company gives you health insurance, free gym membership, maybe even a gym in the building and say they want you to be healthy.
Then they see salary employees working 2 days straight and say "wow he is our best guy".
If they saw a guy at the gym huffing asbestos from a bag would they say the same thing?
Or think he was insane? Hey its not going to kill him this week. So no problem right.

Anyway, I think sleep is important, like eating and drinking enough water.

Yeah but that wasn't the only thing on the list.
You don't necessarily get everything.

Sorry I was tired I forgot 95 percent of what you just said.

But in all seriousness, I'm on spring break now and actually getting to sleep is fucking amazing.

Nah, the gym is in the other building.

They get really mad whenever they find out how many hours I work. I have to pull all kinds of subterfuge to keep them from finding out I work more than the Danish standard 5 hours a week.
