I mention sleep from time to time because it is so important to your well-being. Studies are finding that inadequate sleep can trigger a slew of health conditions. These days, people are cramming more and more things to do into their days, but there are only so many hours in a day. So what gets cut? You guessed it—sleep!
A recent study found that dieters who got adequate sleep lost more fat weight than dieters who cut back on their sleep. They also experienced less hunger. This is just one of the many benefits of a good night’s sleep.
This week, I want you to pay attention to what you are cramming into your days. You may even want to write down your actions for a week. Now, make note of which tasks simply must be done. Then notice which tasks are not necessary. Also, check out which days are busiest. Can some of the necessary tasks be moved to another day? Spreading your tasks throughout the week can help even out your schedule. And be sure to record how many hours of sleep you get.
Recording your week can help you step back and take a good look at what is going on, day by day, hour by hour. From there, you can make little adjustments that can add up to more sleep for you, and less hustle and bustle when you’re awake.
