Michael Hyatt, an internationally recognised leader and author has recently posted  a fascinating info graphic (see link for a larger version) about sleep and productivity. For elite athletes the ability to sleep more improves performance and Hyatt suggests that your own personal productivity, whether it is at work or home will improve with more sleep, even regular naps.Roger Federer says : “If I don’t sleep 11 -12 hours a day, it’s not right.” For many of us we crib on sleep, take short cuts, pack more into our day, use caffeine and alcohol to keep us going and relax and then we wonder why we cannot sleep. Sleep and rest will empower us to do more and improve our health and well being. 

But in this insanely busy western world how can we make sleep a priority? As working woman, mother, wife..what changes can you make to your day to give you the sleep your body really craves? Love to know how you sleep.
