We all know how important sleep is for our overall wellbeing, but just how much sleep do you need to be a highly productive person? Well, a lot.

According to the infographic below from SleepPeople.com, highly productive people need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night. Anything less than six hours a night will result in a loss of productivity. And, getting less than five hours of sleep for a few nights in a row can cause the same impairment as drinking alcohol.

But, it's not always easy to tell when you are really sleep deprived. A few tell-tale signs include irritability, having trouble remembering things, falling into micro-sleeps and, in extreme cases, hallucinations and anxiety.

One way to give yourself a productivity boost is simply by taking a nap. According to the infographic, taking a short power nap can energize you enough to keep you focused for the rest of the day.
