You Are Probably Not Getting Enough Sleep, and It Is Killing You

You are probably not getting enough sleep, and it is killing you

Walker argues that routinely getting only six or seven hours of shut-eye per night can do serious long-term damage to your health, and in some cases even kill you. He insists on a strict eight hours of ‘sleep opportunity’ for himself. That means he’s in bed for at least eight hours a night, even if he spends a portion of that time falling asleep and waking up.

He says that schedule helps keep him productive, as well as emotionally and physically fit.
