Awesome site! I am doing research for a paper entitled "Sleep as Ideology" and am thrilled about your insights. Here's a quote you will probably enjoy . . . “Do but consider what an excellent thing sleep is: it is so inestimable a jewel that, if a tyrant would give his crown for an hour’s slumber, it cannot be bought . . . yea, so greatly indebted are we to this kinsman of death that we owe the better tributary, half our life to him: and there is good cause why we should do so: for sleep is that golden chain that ties health and bodies together. Who complains of want? of wounds? of cares? of great men’s oppressions? of captivity? whilst he sleepeth? Beggars in their beds take as much pleasure as kings . . . Can we drink too much of that whereof to taste too little tumbles us into a churchyard, and to use it but indifferently throws us into Bedlam?’’— Thomas Dekker

Couldn't agree more on sleep. In fact I've heard (and it is my own experience) that it is any hour before 11pm that is worth more than any afterwards. I often feel that I say I work hard to make other people feel better ("oh I'm sooo busy"), but if I can do less with more, then that always works better. Good to know that I'm not a lone voice in this.

Getting into the habit of sleeping, putting aside any pressing items that stress you and demand your attention, even though there is nothing you can do about them... is essential! When you are rested, calm and focused you operate with far greater efficiency. Fact.
