One’s productivity levels are strictly related to the amount of sleep one has. It is a common sensical fact that our brains which continuously slurps up huge amounts of energy do require a given set of sleeping hours for them to function effectively. For adults 7 to 8 hours is the norm. However, sometimes our sleeping pattern is broken and we are either short of or in excess of the normal sleeping hours that our bodies require. And if you are worried whether your sleeping habits affect your productivity why not compare them to the sleeping habits of those famous authors that have marked the human knowledge with their outstanding literary legacy. Brainpickings have recently posted an awesome grahic in this regard.
