    When you look at your sleep quality you need to review the actual duration and sleep quality.  Not only does sleep have an impact on the rebuilding of your body, but is also has an impact on the choices of food and other habits. 

    If you are tired you may increase your coffee or other caffeine sources.  Or instead of making a nutritious meal you will go for the fast bag of chips, candy bar or fast food because you are too tired to make anything.

    How many people want to exercise when they are tired?  Would a tired person rather exercise or sit in front of the television or computer and be entertained?

    There are more accidents today due to sleep deprivation then there are due to drunk drivers.

    Lack of sleep has been link to an increased risk of stroke, heart disease and type 2 diabetes, along with other chronic diseases.

    Sleep quality and lack of sleep make a huge difference in someone's lifestyle and habits.
