How To Get By On Very Little Sleep

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, businesses across the country lose an estimated $28 billion a year due to the lack of sleep, which results in decreased productivity and time away from work. Most people cannot afford to take time off work simply because of not being able to sleep the night before. There are some simple methods for staying awake and being productive while operating on very little sleep.

Pay Attention To Your Internal Clock


Not going to bed on time can interfere with your internal clock and not having access to natural light during the day can also add to an internal clock malfunction. Seek out exposure to the sun, both in the morning and for short breaks during the day, to help reset the body’s internal patterns and avoid afternoon drowsiness. By the time night sets in you are often ready for bed.
