When you’re behind the wheel, in most places you aren’t allowed to (or shouldn’t) use a hand held cell phone, an iPad, Blackberry, or other device that can distract you from the road ahead. If you play Angry Birds while negotiating a road in the mountains, you can be no better than a squashed pig. So what do you do when you’re facing a 600-mile stretch of highway on your next vacation? Play the “License Spelling Game.” It gives your brain a bit of fun to keep from falling asleep while you focus on the road ahead.
One would think that a cell phone pales in comparison to sex, but according to a new survey from Telenav, a mobile applications company, it doesn't.

Sleep is one of the most important for maintaining one's health. And it is so important that a survey of Westin hotel guests say they prefer a good night's sleep to a great session of sex. Some people are surprised by the sleep over sex results but they should remember that it's often business travelers who travel so frequently.
