Musings Episode 65: Sleep and Success

Sleep is one of those things people either get too much or too little of. I’ve always been in the group of the latter. Never been one to oversleep, makes me feel unproductive.

But sleep, is actually one of many critical keys to success.

Oddly enough there is more and more information out there about how employers these days don’t necessarily understand that and have a tendency to push their employees to the limits.

Yet what they don’t realize is right in front of them – adequate rest leads to more productivity. It’s the same when people take breaks more often during work – they can function better…and considering the human brain really only concentrates on something for no more than 15-17 minutes, this makes perfect sense.

Adequate sleep doesn’t just help you focus better though – it also keeps your weight down, among many other things. Throughout the day, a toxin builds up in your spine, and while you rest, and only while you rest, does it release. So lack of rest causes the body to stress, which puts on weight.

Getting enough rest allows better mental and physical alertness, a heightened sense of awareness, sharper thinking, and a better mood.

Not everyone is depressed because of things that go on in their life – but because of overworking and under resting. It’s so elementary.

But alas, with a simple solution comes a simple reason – exploitation of a vulnerability. What’s lacking in some companies today is consideration – consideration of your fellow man – in his work, his home life, and his own personal well being.

Get enough rest and you’ll start to see small but important things change in your life for the better. Take care of yourself first, and it becomes much easier to take care of everything else.

On the flip side, oversleep can be a negative too. Going into too much of a dormant state can cause you to be lethargic and become lazy.

10 hours is the limit for me – and that’s only if I’m really tired. Other than that a good 8 hours works out fine.

In fitness, it’s ESPECIALLY important to get adequate rest so the muscles you’ve been working can heal up at a much faster rate – you don’t grow in the gym, but instead while you’re asleep.

Too much rest though and just eating will cause you to store fat.

So really all in all it boils down to moderation. Do anything in moderation and you’ll be alright. Eat in moderation, sleep, work, etc…just make sure you don’t overdo it – or neglect it.

As always…

Stay awesome.
