  • Five sleep tips for parents of tired teens

    Aug 27 2014...
    The summertime sleep habits of most teens today would be enough to make Ben Franklin blow a proverbial fuse. A 3 a.m. to Noon sleep schedule isn’t likely to meet his standard of “early to bed, early to rise.” But it can be the norm for night-owl teens when they are free from a school schedule.

  • Gene mutation the real secret for successful short sleepers

    Aug 07 2014...
    New scientific evidence suggests that a small percentage of people have a short sleep gene. It allows them to retain their ability to think clearly and make informed decisions while sleeping very little.

    The research opposes the claims of some vocal short sleepers. These high-profile members of the so-called “sleepless elite” often brag about the competitive advantage of sleeping less than six hours per night. They preach that all of us can achieve more by sleeping less. READ MORE>>
