Many of us lament the inability to set and achieve goals, for example, making plans to get that long desired job promotion or raise, or achieving social recognition and prominence for a job well done.

Well, a new study at the London College of Medicine's Public Health and Epidemiology shows that getting between six to nine hours of sleep just might improve the quality of our lives and help to achieve our most ardent desires.

Sleep and optimal performance

Lack of sleep is known to impair brain function causing brain fog and lack of focus. For example, when individuals try to work late into the wee hours of the night towards a project deadline, very little is often accomplished.  Working with a clear head, for instance, after a eight hour sleep, is often more productive. Similarly, we are not at our best in any avenue of our lives if  we are not out there functioning at the peak of performance.  That means getting enough sleep; especially if tt's before that next presentation or important dinner with a client.  Not only will your body thank you, but, you might just achieve what you want.
