Sleep deprivation 'costs UK £40bn a year' By Katie Hope
Sleep-deprived workers are costing the UK economy £40bn a year and face a higher risk of death, says a new study.

The fixation of this mindset begins early. Society labels us, and we label ourselves. A child is told he is a good or a bad listener. A high school student thinks of herself as good or bad at math. These labels become even more entrenched in adulthood.
We are especially good at knowing what we are not. It's not unusual to hear someone say one of the following:
