Snooze was the best feature that was ever designed by the watch companies. We completely rely on them, don’t we?
Those two minutes of extra sleep is just too comforting mentally. But what is the limit to snoozing? And does that really help? Do you wake up with a fresh mind? Or do you still doze off during a boring presentation? Is reaching office at 9.30AM one of the reasons why you hate your job? Have you ever wondered that this ‘sleeping at 2AM business’ has actually started to affect your performance at work?
Read on as we tell you signs that you need to watch out for throughout the day to understand if your body needs more sleep:
No longing for lunch
Sleep deprivation can take a toll of your appetite. Once you mess up your body clock with irregular sleeping cycle, you tend to eat at random hours. Owing to all of this, your body is never hungry at the right time. You can either grain or lose a noticeable amount of weight because of this.
Is the noise from your co-worker’s keyboard enough for you to start hating him? A tiny thing that does not go your way just puts you off and ruins your day? Otherwise calm and quiet, you can become extremely restless and constantly worked up due to lack of sleep. And if not watched, you can put a lot of your good relationships in jeopardy. If these situations sound familiar to you, we suggest you meditate in the morning to stay calm and patient through the day.
Short attention span
Social media, smartphones, television and your superfast life has anyway affected your attention span. And sleeplessness simply adds up to this. There are chances that you keep forgetting your belongings like car keys, wallets or even try finding your glasses while they are actually right on your nose! Lack of sleep affects your concentration badly. So much so that you never forget to carry your notepad while in a meeting. This short term memory loss needs to be attended at an early stage before if starts to affect your functioning. Try feeding your brain with puzzles and number games. This will help clear your mental fatigue.
Sleep on the wheel
Drinking reduces your ability to concentrate and reduces your response rate, now you know why not to drink and drive! In exactly the same way, lack of sleep reduces the ability to respond spontaneously. After a hectic day at work with back to back meetings and over-exposure to the computer your eyes need adequate amount of sleep. So, if you find yourself holding on against falling asleep behind the wheel, it's time you attend to you body's dire need for sleep.
Are you your doctor’s pet? Your immune system bails out on you if you don’t treat your body with a minimum seven hours of sleep? Because of this, you will always be prone to flu, headaches, nausea and body ache. So keep the intake of your power foods right and along with it get a good night of sleep.
Be honest with yourself and accept the fact that it is your extra work that is making you burn the midnight oil. Finish your work during your office hours and go home with a peaceful mind. Adequate amount of sleep is a key ingredient to keep your mind healthy. Bid adieu to all those midweek parties, keeping yourself fresh for working days and see how much more you will enjoy your weekends.
