      I am impressed by your post, “Take Back Your Sleep,” because you made me aware of how much sleep is important. The effects of not getting enough sleep, are more severe than one may think.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is,” Getting an insufficient amount of sleep can lead to a 40% decrease in learning capabilities. Along with this, sleep deprivation can cause memory loss which makes learning even more difficult not to mention just forgetting things can be super annoying. A major issue that not many know about is that loss of sleep causes cardiovascular issues. A study shows that during daylight saving time in Spring. The following day people lose their 1 hour of sleep, the percentage in heart attacks increases by around 25%.” This sentence, I believe, is quite insightful. I had no idea that a regular lack of good sleep increases the chance of various illnesses and/or problems, such as a heart attack or stroke. It’s very interesting how sleep deprivation can have such a profound impact on a person that it can almost certainly result in death.

      Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I enjoyed how I was able to gain new knowledge, that otherwise I wouldn’t have known if I didn’t come across your article.  I am interested in reading what you write next. I really appreciated how you broke down and analyzed the topic. I’m eager to see what you do next.
