So you already know the importance of sleep (right?).
It’s really incredible how ineffective you are when you get bad sleep.
Lately life has been hectic for me and I’ve been getting less sleep than usual.
Here are some of the negative effects I see:
Lessened ability to focus. My mind wanders. I can’t really focus on studying and writing. my training suffers as I’m just not as into it as usual.
More irritable and impatient. I just have zero patience when I’m low on sleep. I’m quick to snap.
Bigger appetite. And I find myself craving calorie dense foods.
Dampened mood. Usually I’m optimistic and generally pretty happy throughout the day, but less so when I get bad sleep.
This is why I place such a premium on getting good sleep.
