Note to Self: Get More “Beauty Sleep”

I came across an article on the BBC News Health website that revealed results of a study that found that there may be such a thing as “beauty sleep.”

Below is an excerpt:

The authors wrote in their paper published in the British Medical Journal: “Sleep deprived people are perceived as less attractive, less healthy and more tired compared with when they are well rested.”

They say the results may be useful in a medical setting, helping doctors to pick up signs of ill-health in their patients.”

I am entertained by the suggestion that sleep-deprived people – doctors – are going to pick-up on this.  If being sleep-deprived is a sign of ill-health, I had better switch chairs with my patients.
