Scientists are not yet sure why exactly we need to sleep or what is the connection between a healthy brain and quality sleep, but they do know it is important. They also know that lack of sleep leads to mental illness, excessive irritation, and lack of productivity and I can say from experience that this statement is completely true.
Whenever I don’t get enough sleep or I postpone it to work on a late project I feel the effect in the following days. I lose focus a lot easier, my creativity drops significantly, and I usually enter this vicious circle where I have to push back deadlines because I feel too tired.
This is why I decided to do some research and I learned there are ways to get quality sleep and remain productive even when you slip into temptation and miss a night. Furthermore, the tips below are great for increasing productivity even when you get enough sleep, so why not try them?
