Did you not sleep on your last long flight? Did you arrive an irritable mess? There are steps you can take to change that next time, everything from the plane you choose to fly on to what you do once you're on board.
Once again, the importance of sleep comes at us, demonstrating that pulling all-nighters in the office, being praised for getting by on little sleep, and yawning our way through life simply isn't healthy.
Sleep is a necessity (and a luxury) for all of us, especially while in college. There's nothing wrong with needing reminders here and there to keep you on the right track, so figure out what works best for you and keep up with it. If nothing else, get your friends in on the movement with us and help others refuse the snooze.

The dominant topic of discussion this year -- both inside the talks and panels and outside, as well -- was transition. Klaus Schwab, the Forum's founder, captured the spirit with this year's theme, the Fourth Industrial Revolution, calling for a collective future "that reflects ultimately that the human being should be at the center."
