Many small business owners try to do it all. They try to grow their business while balancing family obligations, and sometimes they have to work a full-time job until the business takes off! It can feel like there is not enough time in the day, so they may scrimp on sleep just to catch up! However, here’s why this is a big mistake.
Sleep is simply too important!
You need to get enough sleep for these and many other reasons.
- It’s important for your health. Your body simply can’t be healthy without sleep. Your immune system can’t work properly. You will get sick more often and it will take longer to get over every little illness. However, it goes deeper than your immune system. All of your systems are affected by lack of sleep, including your heart.
- Sleep is important so you can function properly. You also need sleep to be able to do a good job, no matter what you do. You can’t function when you don’t get enough sleep. You might make little mistakes. You could even make big mistakes that can’t be fixed. You will even have trouble concentrating.
- It is important to get enough sleep to have a good mood. Many people who go for long periods without sleeping well have trouble with their moods. They are often grumpy and are unpleasant to be around. You may have trouble keeping your business going if you become difficult to work with. You could also lose your regular job.
- Sleep is so important. Your health depends on it. If you don’t get enough sleep you may notice that you start to get sick more often and can’t get over it. You may also notice that you have trouble concentrating and may start making little (or big) mistakes. You may also become grumpy and unpleasant to be around. You may lose clients. Make sure you go to bed on time every night! Your body will thank you.
