Can you handle a sleep retreat?You may not have heard about a sleep retreat before. This simply refers to a holiday where you just shut off from your crazy routines and catch up on a lot of sleep. Sleep debt can take a huge toll on your overall health and productivity. If you are dozing off at meetings, the dinner table or at your kid’s party, it may be time you took a sleep retreat. You may wonder, why not sleep at home? The answer is simple, being away means you are also away from your regular distractions and all you are left to do is sleep, eat, drink, sightsee and sleep some more!
Sleep - Where all great ideas come from
Success demands great thinking.
Some think that success is defined by the hours put into work instead of the quality of that work. The quality of the work is directly controlled by how much sleep we get.
Studies have shown (and there are more being carried out than ever before) that successful people and specifically highly productive people at work tend to have a lifestyle where they sleep more than their unproductive counterpart!
