We’ve all heard that not getting enough sleep is bad for our health and for productivity, but one study impresses just how bad. Sleeping only six hours per night, after time, makes you perform as if you hadn’t slept at all for the past two days, and the kicker is you don’t even realize it!
[Editor’s note: The remaining content of this post was removed because I wrote a very similar story for Fast Company called “Why Six Hours of Sleep is as Bad as None at All.” You can read the newer version of the article there. -Jill Duffy, March 9, 2016]
