The Financial and Physical Toll Caused by Lack of Sleep @ Free From Broke is the epic piece for this week.

What’s so epic about this piece?

We all know someone that’s guilty of bragging about how little sleep they get. The idea of not getting a lot of sleep is often glorified and we give credit to those that are sleep deprived. I’ve been guilty of this myself until I realized the negative implications of not getting enough sleep. This article looks at what can happen to you when you don’t get a good rest.

What’s the best part of this article?

“Lack of sleep seems to be a badge to show how hard we are working.  Yet, while we may feel tired when we sleep less, most of us rarely think about the significant health and financial implications.”

If you want to read more on the topic of sleeping, you can check out an older post that I did where I wrote about difficulty sleeping problems and how they relate to hustling in your 20s.

For a lot of people, they do not see the negative effect (read: expenses) of working late and getting less sleep because they think they are earning more. But they have to face the reality that sickness will strike when the body is abused. I hope we do not reach that point in our lives.

Thanks so much for highlighting our sleep article as the Epicness of the Week!

Personally, I’m a wreck when I’m tired. And then it snowballs through the week until I can get some decent sleep on the weekend (if the kids let me). When I get time to work on a project I feel too sluggish to get it done properly and then I end up staying up late fixing things.

Not good.
