Every sleep-filled second counts
Late night networking and early morning wake-up calls are all par for the course on most business trips. Keeping fighting fit for the next round of power breakfasts, client meetings, all day conferences and travel schedules means maintaining optimal health and wellbeing. Every sleep-filled second counts when executive heads finally hit the pillow!
The well-known benefits of a good night’s sleep, especially for full-on business men and women include, better productivity and concentration. Less well-known benefits are helping to consume lower daily calories and reducing inflammation. However, a lack of proper sleep also has links to emotional and social intelligence, leading to issues such as failing to recognise other people’s emotions, a reduced tendency to think positively or willingness to solve problems, poor impulse control and inability to delay gratification.
Tended to dismiss sleep deprivation as no more than a minor detail
Now, a new US study of 2,000 people aged 45 – 84 looked at metabolic risk factors, such as type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease. Researchers at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institute of Health, found that “for every 1 hour of day-to-day variation in bedtime or length of sleep, there was a 27 per cent raised risk of developing metabolic risk factors”.
The results may be viewed as a “wake up” call to those who tend to opt for hunkering down on any thin-walled, lumpy hotel mattress because it’s just for a “couple of nights”, and they “are out all night” anyway!
Most people, not least the busy executive, have tended to dismiss the occasional or even ongoing sleep deprivation as no more than a minor detail (“for wimps”), and relatively unimportant when there’s important schedules to be kept. However, in more recent times, it’s increasingly recognised just how important quality sleep is to both the actual quality and perception of daily life.
