ICYMI: This is why we are in desperate need of a sleep revolution.

 

In case you missed it, co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington, insists that we are in desperate need of a sleep revolution.

After collapsing one day out of sleep deprivation and exhaustion, Huffington became fascinated with the subject, and has since determined that as a culture we are all just too damn tired.

It is estimated that lack of sleep is costing our economy $5.1 billion a year, given that it contributes to poor productivity, ill health, prescriptions for sleep medications and fatigue related road accidents.

Monique Bowley, Mia Freedman and Kate de Brito discuss the importance of sleep.
