When someone asks you how you are, what do you say? Most likely, you say that you’re busy. All this busyness and this going, going, going is stacking up to a lack of sleep among most Americans, which includes us working women out there.
I looked up what the average American worker gets in terms of sleep each night and it is 6.8 hours. That is less than what we need. According to the National Sleep Foundation, we need 7 – 9 hours of sleep each night.
On the show today, I talked with Debbie Vyskocil. Debbie is the founder of Optimal Edge Performance and an expert is sleep and its impact on personal and professional performance.
During our discussion, we talked about: • How sleep impacts performance • Ways you can improve your sleep tonight • Why naps are important • Why I may have “anger issues” after naps • What revenge sleep procrastination is • What steps people with insomnia and other longstanding sleep issues can take to improve their sleep.
