Healthy habits of famous leaders: Joseph Joffre Edition

No matter how alarming the situation, how terrible the emergency, the tall and rotund generalissimo never seemed disturbed. He became famous for the care he took always to have a good lunch followed by a nap, end the day with a good dinner, and always get a full nights sleep (in bed at nine, back at work at five). Even when things seemed to be at their worst, he made his staff understand that under no circumstance was his rest to be disturbed.” - source
