With the wonderful invention of the light bulb and devices like smartphones, Ipads, and of course Netflix, the lure of 24-hour-a-day fun or work (knowing somewhere, in some time zone someone else is working while you indulge in sleep), the pull to neglect sleep has never been stronger. In the ‘ROI of Sleep,’ Sleep Science Coach and founder of Sleep Science Academy, Devin Burke, explores the return on investment of consistently getting great sleep. Sleep is the foundation of health and unfortunately, it’s also usually the first thing we sacrifice and the last thing we should when we’re trying to get it all done. In his TEDx talk, Devin challenges us to rethink the value and importance of sleep by providing real-world examples of how getting quality sleep is positively compounded across our health, relationships, productivity, creativity, and performance. He shows us that the ROI of sleep is worth the nightly investment and that if you're not sleeping your sacrificing. Sacrificing in your health. Sacrificing in your relationships. Sacrificing in your business/career and you're sacrificing in the possibility of who you could become.
