Get some sleep

Somehow, over the years, this weird tough guy stance has developed over sleep. If you sleep a full 8 hours a night, or spend a portion of the afternoon napping, you’re seen as a weak person who doesn’t work hard and can’t make it in the real world. A wuss, in other words. But what people seem to forget is that we actually need sleep to survive. Without a full amount of rest, our brains begin to malfunction and our bodies deteriorate. Think about it like this if you’re one of those assholes who looks down on those who sleep: If you heard that a friend of yours only ate a handful of rice a day, would you consider them weak-willed? No, you’d want them to get help for their problem.
