If you are one of the millions of U.S. adults who aren’t getting enough sleep, you may need a little motivation. There are plenty of health issues associated with a lack of proper sleep, including cancer, heart disease, obesity, dementia and an earlier death.

Going through the day drowsy, unfocused and uncoordinated is simply a perfect storm for disaster.
