The end of the year is a wonderful time to celebrate, rest and spend time with our loved ones. However, with the festivities coming up, it can be challenging to balance our work and social life. The answer to staying energized and focused is simple: quality sleep. In recent studies, well-rested leaders and founders made the best business decisions. In another survey, it has been shown that good sleepers are more likely to achieve their goals and track their success.
Scientists report that adults need seven or more hours of sleep each night for optimum physical and mental health, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that 35.2% get less than that on a regular basis.
“No sleep, just work” isn’t as cool as it looks. Elon Musk publicly stated that his lack of sleep harmed his physical and mental health, and Arianna Huffington left the company she founded after a lack of sleep took its toll that led to a physical injury.
So, boss, why aren’t you sleeping? If you said Sleep Apnea, you’re on your A game.
Sleep Apnea affects more than getting a good night’s rest. It diminishes your attention span, ability to focus, and capacity to think critically. Long term it can even cause severe damage to your heart and brain. So, what is Sleep Apnea? It’s when throat muscles relax periodically throughout the night causing your breathing to stop which heavily affects getting to deep sleep.
Moderate to severe sleep apnea affects one in 15 adults and has been linked to affecting brain function which can affect memory and the ability to find solutions. Studies also show that when you’re well-rested, you’ll be much more efficient at decision making, problem solving and dealing with your schedule. Miss out on sleep, and you might just miss out on some $$$.
