Sleep Deprivation, Health and Productivity

It’s Thanksgiving weekend and I’ve gotten a lot of sleep so far. In fact, I just woke up from a 4 hour rest this afternoon, and awoke feeling really good.  I haven’t felt this good in a long time.  It’s given me a little breather to discover what might be causing me to feel depressed and tired.

I am suffering from sleep deprivation and it’s actually become a significant problem. The physical aspect is a little scary and there’s no doubt it affects my performance and creativity at work. My craving to be more creative may actually just be a craving for more sleep. I know a couple of issues that cause the problem, but once the deprivation gets going, it creates a negative life of its own.

I’m just thinking now about the physical health implications and that I need to reorganize so I get 8 hours of sleep for sure.
