WE KNOW HOW you feel. The new year and the working week looms ahead (tomorrow!) and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in TheJournal.ie HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing questions…

This week: Sleep – it’s such a massive part of our lives that people tend to have very personal preferences about how they achieve it.

Poll Results:

B - You don't need a top sheet (1661)
A - You also need a top sheet between you and the duvet (528)
C - Can't we all just get along? (138)
