How many of you got up still yawning, not feeling rested, in a bad mood, and needing coffee to stay alert? How many of you know that you’ll be nodding off or even falling asleep at work today? Or are you one of those lucky ones that only need 3-5 hours of sleep at night, making you a true rarity? Years ago, I would see my need for 6-7 hours of sleep as a weakness. I would often strategize about getting less sleep so that I could get more done. Little did I know how important getting those 6-7 hours of sleep was and is to all facets of my life.
I recently did some research on the sleep habits of successful people, those in highly demanding positions.
Here’s what I found:
- Elon Musk gets 6 hours of sleep from 1am-7am
- Tim Cook sleeps for 7 hours from 9:30pm-4:30am
- Richard Branson sleeps from 12 to 5 or 6am
- Ellen Degeneres get 8 hours of sleep per night
