HAVE YOU EVER ANALYZED THE COST AND BENEFITS OF SLEEPING TOO LITTLE?
⌚ ⌚ ⌚ ⌚
After a long weekened of TECHO and a stressful week of work I realize that I haven't been sleeping enough. Not only has my body been asking me to rest but my mental state has not been good, today I was stressed, sad and frustrated. Even though we had three days off last week I had no time for myself nor my family or friends. I had been too busy doing school work, I was waking up early and sleeping too late. I thought that the more time I worked, the more stuff I was going to get done. However, today I learned that this is NOT the case.
PRODUCTIVITY = LESS TIME WORKING
"The more you work, the less effective and productive you are going to become over both short and long term."
-Science Work Hard, Work Smart
I had never worried about getting a good rest or making sleeping my priority. However, it is a must, your body won't perform good and this will affect you. The reason why I couldn't focus as much during the days off was because of sleeping derivation which causes loss of concentration. I LOST TIME. This is why I was less productive, as I stayed more time up I was making myself even less efficient. There is a study that shows that sometimes even drunk people perform better that those who lack sleep.
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
Really sleep is EVERYTHING. How can you be a successful at work if your body and mind doesn't work properly or effectively. This is why I will challenge myself for the next month to sleep tight for at least 8 hours. The trick to productivity is not a VENTI coffee at Starbucks but a good night rest. Finally the best way to feel unstressed and have enough sleep is by keeping a plan that will allow you to keep organized. Even though I keep one and it's already part of my routine I need to improve it so that I maintain myself healthy.
