How do you go to sleep when you are watching the Gymnastic Event Finals, or the 200 meter Women’s Prelims, or the amazing Oscar Pistorious.

Well it takes me a while to calm down.

What are the consequences of sleep deprivation:

        • Memory Loss
        • Weakened Immune System
        • Depression
        • Increased Pain Perception

Are You experiencing any of the above signs or symptoms that result from a lack of sleep?
