Getting enough sleep lately?
According to Princeton's Opinion Research, more than a third of American adults use the snooze button on their alarm clock every morning. The average person hits the snooze button three times before getting up.
"The amount of sleep required by the average person is about five minutes more," observed Max Kauffmann.
Sleep is as necessary to life as food and water. The amount needed varies from person to person, but most adults need about eight hours to function at their best.
When told Napoléon Bonaparte only needed four hours sleep to function effectively, General Ulysses S. Grant said, "I am a confirmed believer in the restorative qualities of sleep, and always like to get at least seven hours of it."
About that snooze button... With enough sleep, it'll become obsolete. People with sufficient sleep will wake up spontaneously -- without the need for an alarm clock.
As German humorist Jean Paul Friedrich Richter once said, "Sleep, riches, and health, to be truly enjoyed, must be interrupted."
Sleep is bliss and refreshment. Don't shortchange yourself.
