I work with a lot of people. In coaching them to become their absolute best I am constantly hearing that they do not get enough sleep. With school, work, practice, kids, their schedule, etc. it is just not possible. This may be the case for some, but for most it is just an excuse. Get to bed 10-15 minutes early and see how you feel. This small change can make a difference. In time increase that if possible. For those of you who believe this is never going to happen. Here is another solution: try taking a cat nap for about 10 minutes during the middle of the day. Set a timer to make sure not to fall into a deep sleep. Personally I use the Address Stress app to meditate for 10-20 minutes everyday. Download the app to your phone and grab a set of headphones. There are so many known benefits to meditating. It can be just what you need to relax, get more rest, improve your mood and come up with new ideas. What ever the solution is, take action to make your life more enjoyable. Do not accept the mentality that “this is just how it is” because it doesn’t have to be. Go get some rest!
