“Sleep is the golden chain that ties health and our bodies together,” according to the Elizabethan dramatist and pamphleteer Thomas Dekker. Can there be any doubt of the truth of this aphorism – that good sleep is necessary for good health? Or is there any doubt that worries about money have been the cause of many a sleepless night for millions of people? The investment community understands the relationship between sleep, money and health, and has created its own related acronym – SWAN – to recognize that clients should always be able to “sleep well at night.”
The last six months, particularly December 2018, may have disrupted many a good night’s sleep.
