Leanne said:

“The sleep that you’re not getting at the moment, the way that your mental health is suffering, the way perhaps your physical health is suffering could be taking years off your useful life, what we call health span, late down the line.”

“Take action now! Some people could be motivated by the impact that they’re going to see tonight or tomorrow or next week or next month or in the mirror… Others are more motivated by knowing they’re doing the right thing further down the line.”
