Everything we learned is moved from our short term memory to our long term memory. Also, when you are well rested you can focus more at the task at hand and not get so side tracked. And let’s not get started on how it effects our moods. You know we are so much more productive when we aren’t irritated or tired.
So for today I want you to write down on your notepad.
