Sleep Habits and Success
Sometimes it feels as though you must be constantly working in order to be successful; however, you shouldn’t be losing sleep over your desire for success. In fact, getting a full 8 hours a night can help you be more successful in life, health, and relationships. Sleep affects our behavior - from our appetite to our mood throughout the day. We are at the whim of our internal clock. By listening to your body and satisfying your internal sleep requirement, you will feel both happier and healthier.
Success in Life
According to a recent study done at Johns Hopkins University, the most successful people are getting 6 to 8 hours of sleep per night. When you get a full night’s sleep, your head is clearer, you feel less drowsy, and can typically focus more than if you had a poor night’s sleep. If you want to be successful in your career, you typically have to be able to make big decisions- and make them fast. Without a clear head, it’s tougher to see all the angles which could effect your decision-making.
If your career is stressing you out and making it difficult for you to sleep - business leaders say you need to refocus your priorities right before bed. Right before bed, you should write down a list of everything you need to do tomorrow, so it isn’t swarming in your head. Furthermore, you should ensure your bed is a comfortable place to relax. Your sleeping pillows should be extremely comfortable, so you can unwind before catching those z’s.
It comes as no surprise that a great sleeping pattern translates into optimal health. Sleep will not make you immune from all diseases, but it will help your body fight anything that comes along. According to researchers, insufficient sleep is linked to heart attacks, heart disease, and diabetes. When you feel your best, you are able to perform at your full potential, which in turn makes it much more likely for you to reach your professional goals.
As mentioned before, lack of sleep can have negative effects on your mood. This poor attitude can affect your relationships. If you want to have a healthy, successful relationship, you need to ensure both you and your partner are getting enough sleep.
Not only will sleep make you and your partner happier to be around each other, but it will also help with your intimacy. 26% of people say they don’t want to be intimate when they feel tired. This puts a strain on their relationships. Intimacy is a huge factor in a relationship, so if you want your relationship to be successful both in and out of the bedroom, start with a good night of sleep tonight.
