Is Low-Quality Sleep Hindering Your Business?
Not seeing the growth you planned for your business this last quarter? Feeling tired, unenergetic, and depleted even after going to bed early? Having difficulty with creativity, expansion ideas, and developing new innovative business plans? Your low quality sleep may be to blame. Sleep experts and business experts alike agree that quality sleep is crucial for the productivity and growth of your business.
The gig is up. CEO’s and business executives have finally caught on that cramming as many working hours into the day as possible, at the expense of sleep, is a terrible idea. Getting the age-old recommended eight hours of sleep a night is a new trend for booming businesspeople. In Nancy Jeffrey’s trending Wall Street Journal article, “Sleep is the New Status Symbol for Successful Entrepreneurs,” she states that Amazon.com’s chief executive, Jeff Bezos, “gets eight hours of sleep a night” and consequently is “very, very rich.” Heroes of the business world today rely on sleep’s rejuvenating powers to spark creativity and innovation within their companies. After Mr. Bezos gets his full eight hours of uninterrupted sleep, he’s, “More alert and I think more clearly. I just feel so much better all day long after I’ve had my eight hours.”
Not only will you feel better with a full nights rest, but your business will too. Penelope Green informs us that, “Last year, the RAND Corporation published a study that calculated the business loss of low quality sleep in the United States at $411 billion” in her New York Times article, “Sleep is the New Status Symbol.” She went on to add, “The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls sleeplessness a public health concern.” It’s time to think about your health and the health of your business.
Not getting enough sleep or low quality sleep through the night are causes of concern. However, your poor sleep could be more than trouble falling asleep or struggling to get comfortable. According to studies, 1 in 15 Americans suffer from sleep apnea, while similar studies have shown up to 80% are undiagnosed. Many times the signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea are downplayed as just a tough night of rest. However, reoccurring sleepiness throughout the day, lack of concentration, and loss of energy could be a result of something more serious. Interrupted sleep, loud, ongoing snoring, and sudden awakenings while gasping for breath are clear signs of sleep apnea and need to be diagnosed and treated.
