Why You Should be Investing in Sleep
Stocks, bonds, venture capital. These are some of the first things people think of when they think about investments. However, there are things that you can do in your day-to-day life that would get you a great return. One of those things is sleeping well, a lot of which has to do with what you rest on, especially when you spend 1/3 of your life in bed. While a mattress may not seem like an actual investment, you may rethink that once you wake up feeling like a million bucks.
You’ve probably heard that the best investment is to invest in yourself, and that’s never more true than when it comes to health and well-being. People might say that the key to being healthy is eating right and exercising, but they often forget to mention sleep. Getting quality sleep is the best way to maximize your exercise and healthy eating; without it, it becomes much harder to follow a healthy lifestyle. Several studies have shown that poor sleep negatively affects mood, reaction time, judgement, and thought processing. If you’re dealing with any related issues, just think that a good night’s sleep could help.
When it comes to your career, other research has shown that sleeping enough can help in that regard too, as it can help with concentration and problem solving ability. However, not enough Zzz’s can be very expensive, as American companies lose about $63 billion a year in productivity that can be attributed to lack of sleep. Some companies have seen this trend, and now encourage taking a snooze at work; some even provide nap-dedicated spaces for their employees.
