I once had a client describe sleep as a waste of time.

The hours they were spending asleep (which weren’t many) were hours they could spend getting work done.

I’ve spoken to a lot of people lately who are losing sleep, not voluntarily but due to worries and concerns keeping them awake. Whilst that’s clearly understandable in the current climate it really isn’t helpful.

It really doesn’t matter what might happen tomorrow that you need to prepare for, the best prep will always be a night of rest.

It doesn’t matter how grave the future looks, you won’t put it right by lying awake at night.

It doesn’t matter what others are doing or saying... thinking about them won’t change their behaviour.

The only input we have into how tomorrow goes is to make sure we arrive there at our best.

It’s our sleep that enables us to deal with life’s unexpected challenges... not our attempts to predict them.

In these uncertain times there is one aspect of life that remains incredibly simple and will never change:

At bedtime, you have nothing else to do but sleep.

You have no jobs to take care of, no puzzles to solve.

Sleep time is recharge time.

Don’t sacrifice that for anything.
