If we all slept enough? …our healthcare burden would plummet, we would have better mental health and fewer suicides… our business would be more productive, global economies would be healthier, our roads would be safer and our children would be smarter (they would develop their brains more completely in childhood).  We would lower our lifetime risks of common mortality issues, we would have happier relationships and healthier marriages physically and psychologically.

(…) sleep is the very best health insurance policy you could ever wish for- and for the most part, it is democratically and freely available universal healthcare plan; one that is rather painless yet extraordinarily effective.

I must say that when I get a good night's sleep, the next day I naturally feel more alert, creative and spontaneous. Just as my life is was what it should be, with a mind full of energy. On the opposite, when I haven't slept well, I feel sullen, slow, sometimes useless. I think that what happens at the micro level must inevitably affect the individual as a whole in the long term, and maybe even affect one's own health.

You grew older today, but did you age as well? If you drank a few cups of green tea, had five servings of fruits and vegetables, exercised for at least 30 minutes at your target heart rate, took nutritional supplements optimized for your age and health situation, spent quality time with close friends and loved ones, consumed a glass of red wine, had a romantic (and sensual!) time with your spouse or significant other, and got 8 hours of quality sleep, then you probably aged very little if at all.
