Entrepreneurs are busy.
It often feels like there are just not enough hours in the day. Many find themselves working long into the night to check another item off their to-do list.
Others wake up at irregular times to get an early start for an important day.
Sacrificing sleep for the business is a common story that entrepreneurs tell to illustrate how hard they work, but is all that lost sleep really making them more successful?
Alison Anderson, CEO & Founder of SuccessionMatching interviewed Dr. Regan Patrick in the Departments of Neuropsychology & Geriatric Psychiatry at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School to investigate the long-term effects of poor sleep hygiene and find out how to get a good night’s rest.
In taking his advice, she discovered some of the short and long-term benefits of making sleep a priority. Not only is getting enough sleep important for an entrepreneur’s long-term physical health, but it can be vital for the health of their business as well.
