While lighting is essential for a good image, it is detrimental to your sleep quality (P2)
What can you do?
In order to ensure this doesn’t happen, you need to take 2 things into account things - the quantity of sleep you need (measured in terms of hours per day) and the quality of that sleep.
But first, you need to understand that sleep patterns are not the same for everybody. Your sleep-wake pattern, also known as your chronotype, is governed by your biological clock, which in turn is regulated by the environment. Your chronotype can also be influenced by genetics creating a vast array of sleeping patterns across individuals. By increasing your exposure to sunlight during the day, minimizing white light before sleep, and practicing mindfulness meditation you can help regulate your sleep patterns and achieve that much needed restful sleep,crucial for the optimal functioning of your mind and body.
There most likely may have been instances where you were not able to receive enough sleep during a busy work week and caught up on your sleep deficit over the weekend. Although this is important and does help negate tiredness and inflammation levels that arise due to lack of sleep, it is not effective at combating cognitive decline. The only way to ensure you maintain high performance levels is by getting that much needed shut eye throughout your week and not just on the weekends.
Sleep plays a massive role in the way we function and getting the right amount of quality sleep can not only improve performance but greatly enhance the quality of your life.
