As I move among Christian workers, those serving in and outside their passport culture, I am amazed at the fatigue. As I reflect on my own struggles with depression through out my adult life I also see sleep as a critical part of God’s restoring me to a place where I can taste his life and offer it to others. In counseling leaders under hight stress conflict situations I often ask them to start with three to five days of just sleep and rest away from the heat of the battle.
What if you improve the quality of your leadership and other aspects of our life by 20% by just adjusting your sleep to the normative pattern designed by God?
This four minute challenge is a great summary of what I have learned about the value God wants us to place on sleep. Give me your thoughts.
In this short TED talk, Arianna Huffington shares a small idea that can awaken much bigger ones: the power of a good night’s sleep.

Arianna Huffington is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, a nationally syndicated columnist, and author of thirteen books.
