Show notes: JamesSwanwick.com/309 Do you stay up late at night to get more work done, then get up early to get your day started? Are you trying to get the most out of your life by sleeping less and taking full advantage of the day? In reality, you’re doing a lot more harm than good by not getting a good night’s rest. Studies have shown that being sleep deprived has the same effects on a person as drinking alcohol. You wouldn’t be drunk at work, would you? Then why would you go to work sleep deprived? Chances are you’re saying you can work just fine without sleep. Have you ever noticed that’s the same thing someone says when they’ve had too many drinks? They don’t notice how bad the impact is, and neither do you. On this episode of the James Swanwick show, the incredibly knowledgeable Doc Parsley gives his insights on the show. You may be surprised to find that even if you think you’re getting enough sleep, you may not be. Those sleeping pills may be making it worse by knocking you out, and not putting you into a proper REM cycle. Download this episode of the James Swanwick show to hear more about how you can start sleeping better, be more productive, and start taking control of your life again. Key Points Sleep deprivation started around the time of the industrial revolution. You need sleep to have a good life. When you work it it makes your body weaker, it’s the rest periods when it becomes stronger. The mind works the same way, and needs the rest to become stronger. You may practice speech or piece of knowledge during the day, but get better at it when you sleep. When you sacrifice sleep you may increase the quantity of hours in your life, but you lose a LOT of quality.
