The real truth is that the more sleep we get, the more productive and high functioning we are throughout the day and long term. When you sleep, your brain is taking what it has learned throughout the day and programming new neurological pathways to remember this information. This means the more sleep you get, the more time your brain has to program pathways. How you feel when you are awake is determined by how well you sleep at night. The more deep, less interrupted sleep you can get in a night, the better the results will be.
Thankfully, our culture is beginning to shift how we view sleep. Forbes released an article in 2018 about how entrepreneurs are making sleep work for them. Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Neil Patel, Ellen DeGeneres are among some of these top business leaders and entrepreneurs that reported getting at least 7 hours of sleep each night. As we become more and more educated on the healing power of sleep, we can begin to shed the myth that "snooze, you lose" and embrace good healthy night's sleep.
