There’s a reason why airline pilots are allowed to fly only a certain number of hours per day.
And there’s a reason why children are most likely to have a meltdown after a long trip out of the house.
When we’re tired we make mistakes, our judgement suffers, and our emotions run hot.
But in today’s push-it, hustle-it, crush-it culture, we’re told to work on through.
Sleep, they say, is for wimps.
But we know that a pilot is safer and a child is nicer after a nap.
So today – if you’re a business owner or anyone with some responsibility – listen to yourself.
If you feel tired, respect that.
Don’t make decisions.
Don’t do important work.
And don’t keep going.
Instead, take a break.
Be good to yourself.
Take care of yourself.
Remember, we do our best work when we’re in alignment… and when we’re exhausted, alignment is hard to achieve.
So rest… and when you wake up refreshed, you’ll be able to do what you want to do and be who you want to be.
You’ll be happier – and those around you will be happier too.
