The importance of sleep has been drilled into our minds since we were all kids. We have all been told that our body needs to be well-rested to function at its capacity. Getting 7-9 hours of sleep each night is recommended. Without an adequate amount of sleep, your cognition, attention, and decision-making skills can be impaired.

Sleep deprivation slows your reactions to stimuli, decreases accuracy of responses, and leads to long lapses in attention. According to the National Sleep Foundation and AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, a driver who has slept for less than five hours in a 24-hour period has the same likelihood of getting into a collision as someone that has been driving drunk. Unfortunately, sixty percent of Americans have operated a motor vehicle while feeling drowsy, and around one-third of them have actually fallen asleep behind the wheel.
