It’s All Related: Bad Diet = No Sleep = Poor Job Performance
Office professionals know that this is a competitive economy, and any way a person can gain an extra lift or advantage could result in serious benefits for the future of their careers. Office professionals studied hard in school and struggled tirelessly to land that desired job, and then worked hard to advance their positions. However, many employees neglect to nurture and develop their important personal habits—such as their diet, exercise and sleep routines—that have a profound impact on their job performance and general happiness.
This article elaborates, “The results of many recent studies identify poor diet as an underlying factor of sleep apnea and excessive daytime sleepiness. Approximately 2 to 4 percent of the adult population is affected by obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, a medically diagnosed disorder that causes frequent breathing disturbances during sleep, consequentially upsetting normal sleep patterns. The incidence of sleep apnea is exponentially greater in obese people, demonstrating a direct association between weight and quality of sleep.”
The problem that many office professionals face is the ability to see their personal and professional lives as a one organism where everything is related. What you eat affects how your feel, and how your feel affects how you work. How you work affects the degree of success you enjoy at your job and your overall professional fulfillment, both financially and spiritually. Remember, it’s all about the big picture.
