Sleep can have an impact on more aspects of your life than you think, according to SleepCycle
The vast majority (93%) of Americans admit that getting a good night’s sleep affects their day. A full three-quarters (75%) feel better, more than half (52%) get more done, 39% are more patient—especially women (44%)—and 39% perform better at work.
The new survey from sleepcycle.com also found that women especially (40%) feel that they look better after a good night’s sleep.
A lack of sleep, on the other hand, has some disastrous consequences—particularly for women, who are crankier, puffier and generally feel worse:
