To get more done, many business owners are tempted to cut out sleep. This approach is counterproductive. While you're sleeping, not only are you recovering from your daily activities, but you're also consolidating your memories and new information into long-term knowledge.

As humans, we're creatures of habit, and finding a consistent sleep rhythm is pivotal. The habit that delivers the largest return on investment for improving your sleep and energy according to a March 2017 study by Fitbit was to consistently go to sleep around the same time. One to two hours daily of lost sleep quietly wreaks havoc on your productivity and energy levels.

So, pick consistent sleep and wake-up times that also allow you enough time in the morning to slowly ease into the day.
