Most of us have experienced the dreaded work day that follows a bad night’s sleep. We tend to be a little bit more irritable, less productive, and less motivated. Lets face it, no one loves the experience that comes from feeling groggy at work.
Just as many of us have experienced those sleep deprived days, many have felt the success that comes from being fully rested. As past experiences have shown, much of the success that we achieve comes from hard work. Hard work requires energy. When we get a good night's sleep, our bodies are able to recharge, giving us the energy to be productive and accomplished.
3 ways that getting a good night’s sleep can help us be more successful:
It Helps you think. Sleep has an amazing affect on your mind. Most of us depend on our cognitive ability to perform our daily tasks. When we don’t get a good night’s sleep our ability to focus, reason, and process information is negatively affected. However, when we get a good night’s sleep, we are for more focused and ready to achieve success.
It helps improve relationships. One of the secrets to success is how we develop our relationships with others. Whether it is in the workplace or in business relationships, a lack of sleep could negatively affect important relationships. If we are irritable, drowsy, or just plain cranky, it makes it difficult to work with people. When we are fully rested we can have better working relationships.
It helps you maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you are concerned about the negative health effects that are associated with poor sleep, you may not be able to be as productive as you need to be. Remember it was Benjamin Franklin who famously said “early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”So when we are faced with the decision to stay up late to finish that important project, we may want to consider the effects of sleep on our productivity. So get out there, be successful and make sure to get the sleep that you need to achieve your goals.
Snoring is more than just a nuisance—it disrupts the sleep habits and lives of 90 million American adults and their partners. That's why we set out in 2003 to restore sleep and help as many people as possible live happier, healthier lives.
