Did you know that a great night of rest can lead to a more productive day? It’s true. When you sleep better, you operate better during your day. Let’s break it down.
Sleep is necessary for your brain to reset and recover. Your brain has worked hard all day remembering all the things you have to do, reading, talking, reminding your body to eat, and so many other tasks. With a good night of sleep we are able to give our brains the much needed break they deserve.
Sleep helps your brain form pathways that lead to increased memories and the ability to concentrate and form deep thoughts. If you get a good night of sleep you will wake up feeling refreshed, maybe energized enough to get a morning workout in, or even tackle your full email inbox. And you will likely be able to sustain that productivity throughout the morning and even your day. You may notice that you work better and produce better work on days when you get a full night of quality sleep.
If you’re looking for one way to increase productivity in your day, to get more done in a shorter amount of time, start by looking at how much you’re sleeping and the quality of your sleep. You might be able to tweak your sleep habits so you wake up fully rested and recovered and can then tackle the day.
