Some time ago, I watched an amazing video about sleep. It ringed true along with other reading I was doing at the same time.

It covers several points:

  • how do we think about sleep? some quotes through the centuries will surely make you smile;
  • biological importance of sleep;
  • dangers of exhaustion and micro-sleeping (self-driving cars, anyone?);
  • sleeping and eating;
  • busting some sleep-related myths;
  • some updates from neuroscience.

It’s only 20 minutes long, and it has some great humour.
