Whether you’re an early bird, night owl, or a permanently-exhausted pigeon, you might be depriving your body of much needed sleep. If you aren’t actively monitoring your sleep schedule, you could be sleep deprived and not even know it!
Effects of Sleep Deprivation
The ever-evasive “sleep…” It can be what we crave the most when we can’t have it, and somehow the biggest inconvenience when we need it most. But getting the right amount of sleep, and sticking to a steady schedule, can lead to:
- More energy
- Increased productivity
- Better focus
- More self-control
- Better mental and emotional health
- Healthier eating habits
- And possibly even finding a unicorn in cupcake-print pajamas. So really, can you afford not to?
Admitting you need sleep is the first step and all it takes is answering 9 questions to find out just how sleep deprived you really are! Maybe you can show the results to your boss and talk her into instituting company naptime!
That wasn’t so bad, was it?
If you are a well-rested superhuman, kudos! Keep it up, kid!
But if you’re like the rest of us zombies, suffering from the side effects of sleep deprivation, animated by caffeine and inappropriate memes, make the decision to take charge of your sleep starting tonight. No more excuses! Mmkay? Mmkay.
