Everyone needs sleep, but the question is how much sleep we really need. There are a lot of people who recommend sleeping 10 hours every night. Children should get as much sleep as they should get, but what about teenagers and adults?
I decided to change my schedule completely. It is summer, and I have more time to work on my business (and do other things as well). On some days, I get less than 8 hours of sleep. On rare occasions, I get 8 and a half hours of sleep. For me, 9 hours is too much.
Those extra hours can add up. If you sleep an extra hour for a month, you are sleeping for more than an extra day. When school comes back, I will go back to the normal sleeping habits. Staying up until midnight on the day before a test won’t work although I have no problem doing it now.
If you have an important meeting the next day or an important assignment that is due the following day, get the bed rest. If you see any decline in performance, get the bed rest. Other than that, you should be as productive as possible.
Goofing off on the web does not count towards being productive. Surfing the web during late hours will lead to a tougher tomorrow.
