You-Need-More-Sleep-main-photo

We’ve all been there, when your lids are so heavy, you can hardly keep your eyes open. What do you do? You reach for the coffee, soda or food—anything to take your mind off the fact that you’re sleep deprived, have a pile of work to tackle and won’t be reunited with your pillow for another 10 or 12 hours. What you should do, if time and location permit, is take a power nap. See our infographic on when is the best time to take a nap. You don’t want to be a part of the statistics below, which show how sleep-deprived Americans are more at risk of being overweight, likely to fall asleep at the wheel and cause accidents, not to mention being less productive. At a minimum, understand your sleep cycle.

    I’ve got one tip for you. When trying to present two sets of data on a single graph, it’s probably best not to use two colors that are close. In this case, I’m talking about a bluish green and a greenish blue. Most guys are going to have trouble with this. It’s not for a lack of interest in colors. Its a physical limitation. Men can not tell colors apart as well as women. It’s supported by many studies.

      I’m a male who is not colorblind and I think the colors used here do not contrast one another enough even for those that can see all colors. For me, they render the chart less visually appealing since they force me to strain to distinguish things – not a lot, but still, more than normal. Actually, now that I’ve looked back and forth at it a few times, it’s quite a nasty looking graphic. Your advice to the chart’s creator(s) should be heeded by anyone else that doesn’t want to tick off viewers.

    I had no problem telling the colors apart. Was the population of your un-cited study comprised of men that are color blind? Or does your usage of ‘most’ not mean great than 50%.

      The original poster of the colorblindness post makes a valid point. If you can see the colors then whooptie doo for you and have a nice day. Your persnickety comment doesn’t do anything to lessen the likelihood that his claim is true for those who are actually colorblind, regardless of whether most men are or aren’t colorblind. If you were to have been a man that actually IS colorblind but could still see things just fine, then that might have been worth chiming in. In other words, shut up.

    Great info. Everyone will preach the importance of cutting this or that out diets, or adding more of something, but no one ever harps on getting enough sleep. I train people for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions, and I always am telling them that sleep is the other half of training. Thanks
