In this episode, I speak with Treasa Spragg from Revolution Project Ltd all about the importance of sleep for our overall health and happiness in work. We talk about moving away from the “sleep when I’m dead” mentality, the importance of sleep cycles, prepping for social occasions/ late nights, being kind to your body, practical tips anyone can use to improve the quality of their sleep. Decide for yourself how you want to feel, make the necessary changes, and don’t forget to catalogue the changes (including how you feel). 2 key takeaways: no blue light (TV, phone, tablet etc) for 1-2 hours before bed – find other things to do instead like reading a book, chores you usually don’t get to, vision boards. No coffee after 12 midday.
Treasa Spragg’s main mission in business is to make people happier and healthier. Treasa firmly believes that we all have intrinsic value with something unique to offer to the world but knows how difficult it is to show up and be our best selves when we’re low on resources with many of those resources coming from our sleep. When our sleep is compromised or sub-optimal, our moods suffer, our productivity and creativity go south and the detrimental effects on our health are evident almost immediately. A little knowledge of the lifestyle factors impacting our sleep and a few tweaks to our daily routines are all it takes to begin to improve our sleep immediately. We can then implement more elements for even greater benefits which are felt in the now and in our later years.
