A sleep deprived society pays a high cost, with some industrial, public transportation, traffic, medical and other accidents blamed on lack of sleep.
experiencing sleep insufficiency are also more likely to suffer from chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, depression, obesity, as well as from cancer, increased mortality, and reduced quality of life and productivity, the CDC states on its website.

other major thing is to keep a good schedule. People are often good at putting themselves to bed at a good time. You can control when you fall asleep but you can control when to wake up.
