Yet ANOTHER study confirms what most health conscious people already know intuitively:
Too little QUALITY sleep or ABNORMAL sleep patterns will raise havoc with primary body and mind performance.
A study by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital reinforces the finding that too little sleep or sleep patterns that are inconsistent with our body’s ‘internal biological clock’ may lead to increased risk of diabetes and obesity.
This finding has been seen in short-term lab studies and when observing human subjects via epidemiological studies. However, unlike epidemiological studies, this new study provides support by examining humans in a controlled lab environment over a prolonged period, and altering the timing of sleep, mimicking shift work or recurrent jet lag. The study was electronically published on April 11, 2012 in Science Translational Medicine.
Here is the complete posting by the National Sleep Foundation.

Is Your LIFESTYLE Killing You?
SUGGESTIONS & PRACTICES TO TAKE ON A DAILY BASIS:
- 1. DO NOT TAKE GOOD TIPS FROM REALLY HEALTHY PEOPLE. WHEN YOU GO TO A DOCTOR AND HE/SHE LOOKS LIKE HE/SHE IS GOING TO DROP DEAD OF A HEART ATTACK, DO JUST WHAT THEY SAY AND DON’T QUESTION ANY OF IT.
- DO NOT EXERCISE, THAT IS REALLY BAD FOR YOU. SIT ON YOUR BUTT AS MUCH AS YOU CAN, IT’S EASIER. IT’S OKAY TO ACCEPT YOURSELF AS THE KIND OF PERSON YOU ONCE LOOKED UPON BACK IN YOUR YOUTH AND TOLD YOURSELF, “GEE, HOW CAN ANYONE JUST LET THEMSELVES GO LIKE THAT? I’LL NEVER BE LIKE THAT!”
- MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT DRINK CLEAN, FILTERED, LIVING WATER BECAUSE YOU ARE MOSTLY MADE UP OF WATER AND YOU WORK BETTER WITH WATER. IT IS BETTER TO DRINK COFFEE BECAUSE IT GETS YOUR ADRENALS GOING AND IT’S OKAY THAT THEY WON’T WORK PROPERLY WHEN THEY REALLY NEED TO IN MY LATER YEARS. DRINK A LOT OF SOFT-DRINKS, FAKE SUGARED WATER (ASPARTAME, Etc) ESPECIALLY – SINCE THE “DIET’ TYPES OF SODA REALLY ACCELERATE A STATE OF OSTEOPOROSIS IN OUR STRUCTURAL BONES. THAT WON’T MAKE ME TOO MISERABLE. AND OF COURSE, TO REALLY HASTEN MY AGING AND QUALITY OF LIFE, DRINK PLENTY OF ALCOHOL ON A REGULAR BASIS BECAUSE IT WILL KILL MY LIVER. WHO NEEDS THAT ANYWAY?
- DO NOT SLEEP ON A PROPERLY DESIGNED SLEEP SYSTEM MADE FOR THE STRESSES AND LIFESTYLE OF THIS DAY AND AGE. DO NOT PROPERLY RECHARGE FROM OUR 24/7 WORLD OF THE HIGHEST DENSITY OF EMF POLLUTION MAN HAS EVER LIVED IN. IF YOU DO SLEEP MORE THAN 6 HOURS, BE SURE TO EAT A BIG MEAL, ESPECIALLY WITH SUGARS AND CARBS, BEFORE YOU RETIRE FOR THE EVENING, BECAUSE IT WILL MAKE SURE THAT INSULIN WILL DISABLE THE BODY’S BUILT-IN RESTORATIVE SYSTEMS TO NOT CREATE GROWTH HORMONES (HGH). THAT WAY, THINGS WILL DEPLETE FASTER AND YOU’LL GAIN EVEN MORE FAT ON YOU’RE ALREADY LEAN, MUSCLE REDUCING FRAME. AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE TV OR RADIO ON IN YOUR BEDROOM OR SO IT’S EVEN HARDER FOR YOUR BRAIN TO RELAX AND REACH NORMAL REGENERATIVE SLEEP STATES.
- DO NOT TAKE TIME OUT FOR YOURSELF. IT’S JUST A WASTE OF TIME TO PRAY, MEDITATE OR OTHERWISE TAKE BRISK WALKS OUTSIDE. IT IS BETTER TO RUN YOURSELF TO THE GROUND AND TRY TO DO IT BETTER AND FASTER TOMORROW. PLUS IT IS A BETTER STORY TO TELL OTHERS, SINCE YOU HAVE NO AVAILABLE ENERGY LEFT (‘BATTERIES ARE DEAD’) AND YOU’RE JUST NOT AVAILABLE TO DO ANYTHING WITH ANYONE ELSE.
- KEEP UP THE JUNK FOOD, EMPTY CALORIE, AND NUTRIENT DEFICIENT FOODS. IT’S CHEAPER, KEEPS ME WANTING MORE OF IT, AND I JUST LOVE HOW I GET TO WEAR IT AFTERWARDS TOO! AND MAKE SURE YOU SMOKE TOO! THAT REALLY HELPS EVERYTHING.
- DO NOT BOTHER BREATHING CLEAN, FILTERED, IONIZED AIR. JUST KEEP SUCKING MORE TOXIC AND UNSAFE CHEMICALS INTO YOUR LUNGS, WHICH ARE DELIVERED THRU YOUR BLOOD TO EVERY (STILL) LIVING CELL IN YOUR BODY.
AFTER YOU GET A GOOD LAUGH HERE, STOP IN AND GET THE REST OF THE STORY:
TELL US WHICH OF THE 7 HABITS YOU WOULD REALLY LIKE TO KICK-ASS ON! WE CAN SHOW YOU HOW SIMPLE AND EASY IT CAN BE.
