Sleep deprivation is a bigger deal than most people will admit. I would be willing to bet that a vast majority of you reading this article right now would take me up on an offer of a two hour nap. Why are we so sleep deprived? I think it’s because of that bomb in our pocket we call a telephone. There was once a time when you could get away from your day, your job, your friends, your family for at least a few minutes but today that’s impossible. Sleep deprivation is not only unhealthy, but it can be very dangerous.

Monday night at about 11:30 pm a woman driving home from her job fell asleep at the wheel. In a most ironic twist of fate her vehicle crashed right into a mattress store. Authorities investigating the crash said the woman was on her way home after a 13 hour shift at her job. Fortunately there were no injuries reported in the crash. Investigators say the woman’s vehicle was so deeply imbedded (pardon the pun) in the store that utilities had to be disconnected in the area in order to safely remove the truck from the store.
