The Science of Sleep. The Importance of Rest to Founder Success

Too often, business owners sacrifice quality sleep for their ventures. Whether it’s from a demanding workload, stress or midnight brainstorming, the fact is entrepreneur insomnia can cost more than 40 winks...but success too.

Do you prioritise quality sleep?

Or, do you understand what quality sleep truly is? 48% of UK adults agreed that sleeping badly has a knock-on effect on their mental health....but to what extent? Let’s run over some facts.

Lack of sleep can affect us mentally, causing:

  • Loss of focus
  • Bad moods
  • Low energy
  • Confusion

...and the list goes on!

But it’s not just mental health you need to think about. Physically, a lack of sleep can put us at greater risk of:

  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Diabetes

...to name a few!

All this, paired with the fact that 1 in 3 UK adults suffer from lack of sleep, tells us it’s time to prioritise quality sleep, especially in business.
