Not getting enough sleep is detrimental to both your health and productivity. Results from one study impress just how bad a cumulative lack of sleep can be on performance. Subjects in a lab-based sleep study who were allowed to get only six hours of sleep a night for two weeks straight functioned as poorly as those who were forced to stay awake for two days straight. The kicker is the people who slept six hours per night thought they were doing just fine.

Do you agree with this? How much sleep do you get and does it affect your performance?

Yeah speaking as someone who suffers with insomnia, I can say from experience that 6 hours is better than none and this article is a pile of lies.

How the hell are you supposed to function in today's society and have a consistent sleep pattern of 8 hours a day?! It doesn't add up!

I've been doing 5 1/2 to 6 hours a night for about a decade now and I feel great with that amount of sleep. When I get more I feel off the next day.
