Sleep is the New Status Symbol? Why Sleep is the New Luxury
It’s official, sleep is in. The business world has finally caught up and caught on to the success correlated with a good night’s sleep. All of you sleep lovers can rejoice knowing your nights of sleep deprivation and days spent stumbling around like a half-dazed zombie with a shot of espresso in your hand are over. In the Wall Street Journal’s article, “Sleep Is the New Status Symbol for Successful Entrepreneurs,” Nancy Jeffrey wrote, “Sleep, that rare commodity in stressed-out America, is the new status symbol.” She went on to add, “Once derided as a wimpish failing, slumber is now being touted as the restorative companion to the creative executive mind.”
Not only is sleep gaining notoriety for its ability to make us sharper, fresher, and more productive, but the dangers of sleep deprivation are gaining publicity too. In the New York Time’s publication of “Sleep is the New Status Symbol” Penelope Green writes, “The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls sleeplessness a public health concern.” Not only lack of sleep, but also disruptions during, or sleep apnea—a sleep disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep—can potentially lead to more serious problems such as hypertension, heart disease, and liver problems.
Did you ever think sleep would be called a status symbol or equated with luxuries? While sleep may be the new must-have, it can be elusive for some. While you may no longer be pulling all-nighters in hopes of getting the slightest edge on the competition, you may find you’re still not getting that full night of rest you so desperately need. If you’re allotting yourself plenty of time for sleep and you’re not getting a full night of rest, you may have a more serious problem, especially if you are repeatedly finding yourself tired and drowsy during the day even after a full night’s sleep. Undiagnosed sleep problems are incredibly common amongst people of all ages.
Do you wake up with headaches in the morning or abruptly wake up choking or gasping for air during disruptive sleep frequently? These are signs of obstructive sleep apnea and need to be addressed. Or perhaps you have trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep? These are signs of other sleep problems.
