Entrepreneurs Can Succeed And Get Proper Sleep
In order to be a successful entrepreneur, whether you are running a small business or a large one, you have to bring your A-game to work every day. The best way to do that is to get a good night’s sleep. And let’s face it, not many people who are under the kind of pressure it takes to build a business do. In fact, 40 percent of Americans report not catching as many Z-z-z’s as they should each night.
The hard truth is, if you’re not getting enough sleep, you are losing money. That’s a mighty bold assertion, but it makes sense when you think about it.
Not getting enough sleep can result in some terrible consequences on your body and mind. But, how do you get enough rest when you are busy trying to do all the things necessary to grow and maintain your business?
Read on for three tips to help you do just that:
1. Create effective sleep habits
If you want to sleep better, there’s no way around it, your sleeping routine has to be just that: a routine. It’s not as hard as it sounds. Here’s how:
-Go to bed and wake up at the same time each night. Research shows that people with erratic sleep patterns are at greater risk for heart problems. A stable sleep routine helps the heart recover from the stresses of the day by filtering out stress hormones.
-Optimize the environment. Adjust the thermostat to between 65 and 72 degrees, because cooler temperatures are said to promote better sleep. In addition, make your room as dark as possible. Black out curtains or sleep masks are both excellent ways to darken a room.
-Read something. Nothing too serious or exciting. Something a little on the dry side is best. And, make it a hard copy, not text that requires a charger, because the light from any electronic device tells your brain to “stay awake” no matter how dark it is in your room.
– Try some soothing tunes. Listening to some mellow music just before bed is a perfect way to wind down. The minute you turn it on, it tells your brain to slow down, relax and get ready for some high-quality shut eye. You can also try white noise, like from a fan, a white noise machine, or even an app.
