In This Issue Abby's Magazine From the Desk of our Executive Editor Abby Sayler The Power of Sleep Many of us try to sleep as little as possible – or feel like we should. There are so many things that seem more interesting or important than getting a few more hours of sleep, but just as exercise and nutrition are essential for optimal health and happiness, so is sleep. The quality of sleep directly affects the quality of your waking life, including your mental sharpness, productivity, emotional balance, creativity, physical vitality, and even your weight. No other activity delivers so many benefits with so little effort!
