You probably have read our first part of a multi-part series where we are discussing how physical fitness can go a long way in ensure career success. In the second part of this series, we are going to talk about Sleep cycle and energy and what a big correlation it has with succeeding at our workspace.
Stay sharp my friend
We have been told this countless of times that a good night’s sleep is essential for our health. This saying does not exist for the sake of it but in fact does impact our mind, body and hence our overall stress levels. An average adult must get anywhere between 7-9 hours of sleep every night in order to remain in a good mental state. If you do not get the right amount of sleep, it can start affecting your energy levels, headaches, drowsiness, increase blood pressure and can eventually lead towards a more fatal heart condition. Lack of sleep directly affects your work, concentration levels and motivation. Walk into work sleepy on too many occasions and you definitely miss that important deadline you had to meet.
A good night’s sleep shows
As per our understanding from the previous article, a persons physical appearance can go a long way to succeeding in life. You would not want to walk in to work with dark circles, heavy eyes, slouched shoulders and looking untidy. Companies want their employees to look smart because afterall, they represent the company. A sleepy and messy Manager going for a client meeting is not a very good idea for the company.
Don’t go yawning all the time
A recent study shows that when a manager or boss is found yawning far too many times in a meeting, it automatically affects the team and their performance. The team sees their manager as lazy and hence feel demotivated which instantly showcases in their output. Looking energetic and in your top form relays positive energy to your team and to the people around you who automatically start putting in more effort because of it.
