New Delhi: We all want to know the key to high productivity, but in our quest we compromise the most important productivity practice – a good night’s sleep. Don’t underestimate the importance of getting enough sleep. How much you sleep can determine your productivity, creativity, analytical skills, and even the success of your business or career.
We’re often aware that the ideal amount of sleep is eight hours, but with commitments to family, friends, and work that often take up more than 16 hours a day, it can be difficult to get the math to work. You may think that four or five hours of sleep every night will allow you to function perfectly. Maybe you’re used to night flights, changing time zones and the occasional night out. You can even flaunt your lack of sleep as a badge of honor. Yet insufficient rest leads to poor judgment, lack of self-control, and diminished creativity.
The new currency for productivity is energy, not time. Therefore, making healthy sleeping habits a priority will greatly benefit both your overall health and your business. Follow these five simple strategies to get a good night’s sleep and emerge with a leader’s presence:
First put your thoughts ‘to bed’
Many professionals experience insomnia on a regular basis, their minds racing with multiple problems and an extensive to-do list. Aside from all the techniques for getting a good night’s sleep, detox your mind by reflecting on the three things you’ve accomplished during the day, no matter how small or big. Make resolutions for the next day and give yourself a mantra like, “I deserve to rest now so I can recharge my batteries for my day tomorrow.”
How often do you give thanks for the blessings in your life? According to studies, developing the habit of appreciating the good things in your life can be healthy. You may have trouble falling asleep at night due to stress and vulnerability. Therefore, practicing appreciation before bed can help alleviate this problem. Write down three words or things for which you are grateful. This helps prepare your mind for happy thoughts and store pleasant memories before resting.
Recognize and respect your sleep needs
Based on our circadian rhythm, each of us has a specific chronotype. Some of us work best late at night while others work best in the morning. Some of us are night owls. Put yourself in the best possible position to be successful by respecting your innate tendencies regarding your chronotype. Make note of the times of day when you feel most awake and plan your most difficult or challenging tasks during those “on” times.
Create a ritual
Experts recommend a sleep ritual that includes activities like taking a bath or shower, drinking herbal tea, turning down the lights, and reading a physical book while you relax. Make sure you’re getting the amount of sleep you need by creating a sleep schedule. The typical adult needs 7 to 8 hours of sleep a day, but some need less and some need more.
Visualize your Happy Place
You can begin to fall asleep peacefully and enter an overall state of bliss by imagining the place that makes you happiest. What are you watching? Examine the hues, shapes, and views that make you so happy. What smell do you smell? Is it sweet and fragrant? Does it bring back fond memories for you? what can you hear Is that some melody or the sounds of nature? what do you feel on your skin Is it a queasy feeling or a cool breeze? Come back to your happy zone as often as you need to.
