Sleep Deprived? You Can Still Be Productive At Work
I have a seven week old. She’s adorable and I love her so much, but I already understand why Adam Mansbach’s notorious NSFW parenting book is a bestseller. My tiny human is not a fan of sleep, and I’m operating on less than I ever have. (I see you, college finals week, and I’m laughing at the idea that those were tiring all-nighters.)
I’m also back at work, and while my colleagues know it’s a transition period, it’s still my job to, well, do my job. I don’t want to be pigeonholed as the tired new mom and get passed over for something exciting that requires attention to detail. So, I’ve come up with a four-step plan to save me from my most sleep deprived self so I can still do good work.

You pulled an all-nighter — whether it be for your job or academics — with no sleep — and now you have to wake up early to attend class or commute to your workplace.
Or perhaps you are a new parent and you stayed up all night to soothe your crying baby.
Regardless of the reason for your lack of shuteye, you’re probably thinking: what could possibly wake up a sleep-deprived brain? Maybe a cup of coffee or two, right?
