“Did you know that the definition of being sleep deprived is being awake for more than 17 hours? That is the equivalent of a blood alcohol level of 5%, which is the legal limit.” (1:49, Jackie)

“Sleep is linked to every biological process. You’re more attentive, more focused, better recall, better memory, better mood, confidence, leadership.” (2:49, Jackie)

“A body is miraculous. It’s a trillion-dollar machine that we’ve never been taught how to use.” (3:39, Jackie)

“Do you get up in the night, go to the bathroom, and go back to sleep? Or do you get up in the night, go to the bathroom, and then you’re stuck awake for hours? So this is common, but not normal.” (4:57, Jackie)

“There is absolutely no drug on the planet that can mirror the miraculous powers of sleep.” (6:15, Jackie)

“We’ve been designed to worry because we have been designed to survive, but it’s what you do with that.” (10:04, Jackie)
