Seven hours sleep. That's all you need to dodge a catalogue of health problems and fatigue-related aliments. Less than a third of your day. Bed by 11:00, up at six, plenty of time to fit in just one more chapter of your book. Or that next episode on Netflix. Or maybe just one more level on that app. Wait, how is it 12:30?
