Most people love sleep and it’s something we usually don’t get enough of. What's that costing us? Economists Jeff Shrader and Matthew Gibson studied sleep as an investment that can actually make you money. Jimmy Rhoades is talking with them to get some valuable benefits of getting more dream time in each night.

1.  Health

People who sleep longer normally tend to live longer, they have lower overall mortality, they have lower heart disease, they have lower body mass index and they have healthier weight.

2.  Happiness

If you get better sleep your mood will normally be better, you'll be happier and friendlier with other people.

3.  Income

If you sleep just an extra hour per week, you could see two- to five-percent improvement in your wage on an annual basis.
