Dear Subscriber,

Do you have up to 8 hours of sleep every night? If the Answer is No, then you are likely to be heading towards a major health problem and a possible cardiovascular crisis.

Research has shown that young adults (18-25 years) should get a recommended sleep time of 8 hours on a daily basis. However, long hours of work have made this sleep target a ‘dream’ (unattainable) for many employees. Insomnia is known to affect the body’s metabolism and emotional balance, resulting in anxiety and hypertension. To understand the adverse effects of sleep deprivation on your health and productivity, please read the Lifestyle section in this Digest.

In other news, the 2019 Presidential election is over and Nigeria has decided for President Buhari to remain in office for another 4 years. The next few months leading to the inauguration could either boost or dampen investor confidence, depending on the outcome of the petitions and disputes.
