Do you regularly get enough sleep every night? Do you wake up in the mornings bleary eyed, wishing for another hour?
Whilst most of us admit to being a little tired in the mornings, if you’re regularly waking up and wishing you could turn off the alarm clock, that’s a very good sign that you’re not getting enough shut eye.
The average adult needs around 7-8 hours of sleep every single night, but what happens when you don’t get that amount? What happens when you’re at work, hiding behind your office partition screens, trying to wake yourself up?
Check out this rather interesting infographic which outlines the effects of sleep deprivation.
As you can see, not getting enough sleep does nothing for your focus and productivity whilst sat at your office chairs, but also puts your safety at risk. There is no amount of morning coffee hit which can right that issue, and the only way to address is to identify your sleep issue and work to change it.
Relaxing before bed, avoiding loud music or action films, avoiding eating in the couple of hours before you sleep, having a warm bath, making sure your sleeping environment is comfortable and the right temperature, and turning off your phone, these are all ways you can ensure a better night’s sleep, so you arrive at your funky office furniture the next morning ready to begin your work, and not wishing for an extra few hours in bed.
Do you get enough sleep? Be honest!
