Poor Sleep Hygiene Is Killing You And Your Career
The next time you tell yourself that you'll sleep when you're dead, realize that you're making a decision that can make that day come much sooner. Pushing late into the night is a health and productivity killer. According to the Division of Sleep Medicine at the Harvard Medical School, the short-term productivity gains from skipping sleep to work are quickly washed away by the detrimental effects of sleep deprivation on your mood, ability to focus, and access to higher-level brain functions for days to come. The negative effects of sleep deprivation are so great that people who are drunk outperform those lacking sleep. Why...

Trusting their instincts: Family finds help for laryngeal cleft
For some kids, the hospital can be a scary place, where even doctors with the best intentions poke, prod and serve up yucky-tasting medication. But for three-year-old Jack Steinberg, a visit to Boston Children’s Hospital is worth the trip from his home in Great Neck, New York. “No, it’s really fun,” Jack’s mother, Jessica, recently overheard him telling his older brother, Henry, who isn’t a fan of doctor visits. “They give you toys and stickers there!” Jack’s cheerful attitude seems at odds with his recent health challenges. In fact, says his father, Noah, “If you saw him walking down the street, you’...

The Necessary Luxury of Rest
I thought it was kind of funny recently when someone called me a "medium-hard" worker. It kind of shocked me. I'd always thought of myself as a very hard worker. But then I considered it a kind of success because I had been trying to slow myself down for a while now. I used to run through life at breakneck speed, always in competition. So notching back to a normal, if medium, worker was an improvement. It's true that, like Walt Whitman, "I loaf and invite my soul." I look forward to the sweet succor of rest. I also move pretty quickly when I have to. Lately I've come to learn when circumstances call for one type of speed ...
