If you’re feeling sluggish and find that you’re not as productive as you have been, you might want to get more sleep. If you’re like many people, you scrimp on sleep so that you can boost your productivity and check off more items on your to-do list. However, this only serves to make you less productive (not to mention crankier). Sleep is essential to your brain function—and a well-functioning brain is critical to your productivity and success.
How sleep makes you more productive:
1. Keeps your memory in top shape. Your brain needs sleep into order to process and filter the information it received all day. The process boosts your intelligence by weeding out the information that isn’t important. When you don’t get enough sleep, your brain doesn’t have the opportunity to do complete this process, which can impact your memory and learning ability.
2. Improves your concentration. Being well rested will help you to focus better on completing a task at hand, and will help you avoid making errors. Conversely, not getting a enough sleep can impair your cognitive function and leave you open to making mistakes. So, you may feel like you’re getting a lot done; however, you may have to go back and correct what you completed.
3. Boosts your mood. When you wake up from a good night’s sleep, you probably feel refreshed and ready to tackle the challenges of the day. However, when you don’t get enough sleep, you may wake up grumpy and stay that way all day. And, if you’re stewing in a bad mood, you may not be able to focus and complete the proactive lead generating tasks on the Dashboard of your Referral Maker real estate CRM.
