The General Manager of Despite of Despite Media, Kennedy Osei has urged people to disregard motivational messages concerning sleep.
According to him, someone who avoids sleep is putting his/her life in danger.
The son of Ghanaian business mogul Dr Osei Kwame Despite believes sleeping enough can help one to rejuvenate the body.
Kennedy added that he has been a victim of popular motivational messages like ‘team no sleep’, ‘sleep 8hour a day and that’s 1/3 of your life,’ ‘lazy people sleep at night,’ and ‘sleep is for the weak’. Which didn’t help him in anyway.
“Most people including myself have been victims of sharing the above statements as some sort of motivation,” he wrote on Instagram.
“However, having a deep and sound sleep is a non-negotiable biological necessity and not an optional lifestyle luxury.”
He said the shorter people sleep, the shorter their lifespan.
“The shorter your sleep, the shorter your life! Lack of Sleep is a source of ageing and decline in the proper functioning of the brain. Sleep is a source of the immune booster and a natural developing factor for every living organism.”
“Make the most out of your working hours and acquire a GOOD & SOUND SLEEP,” he added.
