How to avoid Business Burnout

How to avoid Business Burnout

You go into work tired because you’ve been up all night or you’re not sleeping because you’re thinking about the stresses of work and you’ve got a full list of clients to see! Sound familiar? At PracticeNav reviewing healthcare practitioners from across all sectors of the industry gives us a keen insight into how a lack of sleep can affect a healthcare business. Getting the right amount of sleep is similar to getting the right food in your body. Each person has their own requirements for sleep but some have more than others. For example a baby is “supposed” to sleep more at night and have regular naps during the day. Older people tend to need more sleep, while others don’t need as much. Now some people reading this will say, well some of the “great” leaders of the world could survive on 4 hours sleep a night, Thatcher, Bush, Clinton, Ahern. Take a look at some of their decision while in office!! Now off my political rant and onto the topic. Why you need to get better sleep.

“Sleep is the most potent performance-enhancing activity that we know of”

Jeffrey Kahn – Sports Performance Scientist

The effects of not enough sleep

  • Sleeping less than 8 hours a day increases your risk of injury
  • You’re moody towards staff, clients, family and friends
  • A lack of sleep can give the effect of intoxication (Driving tired can kill)
  • You make basic mistakes on simple tasks

The effects of good sleep > 8 hours

Tips to get better sleep

  • No electronic devices in the room
  • Exercise more, Better diet, meditation
  • Sleep schedule (go to bed at a regular time)
  • Don’t read business books before going to bed
  • Don’t check work tasks such as emails or notes after 9pm

Tiredness is a terrible thing!! (Mammy 1988). You see the world differently through tired eyes and it’s very true. So if you’re stressed, constantly irritable or struggling with your business getting more sleep can have a significant improvement on your body’s function.
