While many people often skimp on sleep in the name of productivity, they’re actually hurting themselves. While it may seem counterintuitive, the fact is that more sleep leads to greater productivity. Lack of sleep (fewer than seven hours a night) clouds judgment and has a negative effect on your ability to focus.
Not only that, it actually makes it less likely for you to take on difficult tasks and more likely veg out and surf the web when you should be working. It’s crucial that you adequately recharge your mind and body each night.
