Almost every person in the world prefers to sacrifice their sleep to either their anxiety about work left out on the table of some form of mindless relaxation. For most, having enough sleep is not a priority. But it should be, for the sake of either- that anxiety, work itself, the end goals of yours, or relaxation.

However, long sleep is not a panacea, at all. In the same study, individuals who sleep more than 8 to 9 hours per night, have a booming 30% tendency of dying early.
