Infographic of the Day: So What If You Don't Sleep Enough?
How many times have you told yourself (especially when you're up at 2 a.m. on a Sunday night): "Eh, it's just sleep." Is it just sleep, though? What happens to your health when you're not sleeping enough? This infographic designed by FFunction for Zeo, a company that makes an electronic "sleep coach," is less of a real data visualization than a set of illustrated facts. But the facts are pretty gobsmacking. For example, we, as a nation, seem pretty tired all the time: Only 7% of people get eight hours of sleep a night. Scientists are inching closer to an explanation of how all this might be the case. That said, what the infographic doesn't tell is that sleeping too much can be almost as a dangerous as not sleeping enough. [Via Zeo]
