Sleep is a critical factor to a good working life. You need good enough levels of sleep in order to rejuvenate your body and mind. If you can think of how a computer behaves when it’s been on for a long time – it starts slowing down and whatever you do with the computer, it will stay slow. The only solution is to switch it off and restart it to get it working back in good order. This is just like you; if you keep trying to work hard, you may find that you may become clumsy, making mistakes and generally slowing down. Therefore it’s important that you prioritise sleep so that you are waking up refreshed and re-energised. Did you know that between 10.30pm to 1.30am is where you will get your best quality of sleep? So to ensure you are optimizing your amount of sleep, ensure you get to bed at a suitable time. Aim to go to sleep at 10.30pm and wake up at 6.30am.
