Once again The Happiness Project taps directly into my brain w/ this prescient suggestion I always forget I should remember:
Get more sleep!
It’s easy to become accustomed to being sleep-deprived, but it’s not good for you. Many researchers argue that not getting enough sleep has broad health consequences, such as raising your risk for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and even obesity, but in addition to those, it has a profound effect on your happiness.
One study showed that a bad night’s sleep was one of the top two reasons for being in a bad mood at work (the other? Tight work deadlines). Another study suggested that getting one extra hour of sleep each night would do more for your daily happiness than getting a $60,000 raise.
Roger. Halloween makes this a bad weekend to set this resolution into effect, but the time change makes this a good week to remember to remember.
