How can lack of sleep affect your work performance ?

Time and again we’ve talked about how mattresses can affect your sleep .. but instead let’s talk about how your lack of sleep affects your productivity at work.

The other essential factor which contributes to your tossing and turning is the lack of sleep you endure due to work. Often the stress of either showing up to work the next day, the tasks you have to achieve at work, or a stressful situation that took place in an unhealthy work environment tends to keep you up, staring at the ceiling rethinking every possible scenario about what you could have done differently.

This then eats into the time your body needs to rest to function at its optimum. Considering that doesn’t happen you have an equally bad day at work the next day as well.

Do you notice a pattern here? Cause we sure do!

If you are reading this article, completely shocked as to how accurately we have described your sleeping schedule, we suggest you keep on reading.


Here are some habits you can inculcate in order to combat these problems:

👉 Distinguish work from home
We often tend to bring home all our problems from work, there are so many reasons this habit is unhealthy. When you separate the two you tend to improve your personal life, these boundaries will also help you be more productive at work. Time management and boundaries are everything they help increase your productivity by manifolds so be sure to get your work life and personal life balance right.

👉  Journal your thoughts!

Our mind can often be a dark rabbit hole. It’s human tendency to guilt-trip yourself when you think you deserve it. That being said, guilt-tripping yourself while you come up with no solution is a path you do not want to discover. Journaling can avoid and help with these self-pity habits. When you put your thoughts down on paper you gain perspective of them and you allow yourself to reason with the situation in a rational manner. This will help you come to a solution that will prove useful in the future. 

👉How to balance your work life and personal life

No matter how your day plays out it is important to have the ability to let go of it and understand that there is only so much you can control. Instead of losing your sleep over what you could have done, it’s always a better idea to get some sleep and make a difference with what you do after. But in order to be recharged for the next day, you need to be able to rest and get the right kind of sleepover to prevail with a positive attitude the next day.

Keeping in mind the points mentioned above and you should definitely be able to combat your lack of sleep that affects your performance. Remember the key is to able to draw boundaries and separate work from a place you call home.
