In today’s on-the-go culture, we spend a lot of our lives in a state so sleep deprivation.   We struggle to find enough time in the day to accomplish family, me, and work time so often we skip multiple hours of sleep to live the best lives that we can.  There is plenty of research to show that chronic sleep deprivation leads to increase stress, overeating, and an expansion of the waistline.
