How a Good Night’s Sleep and Success Go Hand in Hand

sleep and success

Did you know that most Americans are depriving themselves of the proper amount of sleep each night? Many Americans report getting under 7 hours of sleep and this can have major consequences to your health and productivity throughout the day.


Successful People Get a Full Night of Sleep

Some of the most successful people in the country state that their sleep schedules help contribute to their productivity. People like Greta Thunberg, Marie Kondo, and Serena Williams all get over seven hours of sleep a night, and people like Jeff Bezos state that getting the proper amount of sleep a night is what you need to be energized and excited the next day.


Getting less than the recommended eight hours of sleep a night can lead to poor health with increased chance of stress related illness as well as weight gain and increased depression and anxiety. Poor sleep habits can impair your coordination and can double your chances of getting into a car accident! Lack of sleep can also lead to missing days of work which is responsible for the loss of $411 billion in lost productivity every year!


We all know that sleep is important, but can sleeping more really increase your success? Studies say yes! Poor sleep can reduce your ability to make wise financial decisions, and making poor financial decisions can ultimately lessen your chances of success. In business settings, a good night’s rest can dramatically reduce the amount of clerical errors and mistakes, and well rested persons save companies nearly $2,000 each year! 


How You Can Get Better Sleep

Good sleep patterns increase the amount that you can work effectively, aids in your education, and overall improves your quality of life. All of these elements relate directly to your chance of success, so why are so many Americans depriving themselves of it? 


There are many factors that go into getting a good night’s rest, and some require some lifestyle changes that people don’t even realize. One of the biggest culprits for poor sleep is exposure to blue light. Blue light is produced from screens on phones, laptops, and TV’s and inhibits the natural production of melatonin. Limiting screen time before bed or investing in blue light filtering glasses can dramatically increase your sleep and your success. 

In Conclusion

Even simple things like laundering your sheets more often or increasing your daily exercise can help in bettering your sleep routine. Clearly adequate sleep is working for some of the top earners in the country, it’s time that we make the change as well.
