As you know, it’s tough to focus and get things done when you’re stressed or working on a lack of sleep! Due to this, it’s so important to focus on you just as much as you focus on your sales and your business.
When you’re staying in noisy hotel rooms, working late or pulling all-nighters, you must make an active effort to stay grounded and ensure that you’re not neglecting yourself for the sake of your career. Remember, your career doesn’t exist without you!
Granted, I’m not a medical professional, but the following tips have helped me get more rest which has resulted in a more focused and efficient version of myself.
1) Write Things Down
Before you go to bed, write down everything you need to do the next day. This may sound a little elementary…but it works! Get all of your outstanding tasks out of your head and onto a piece of paper. <– Click To Tweet
You will also have increased your organization during your work day because you will have all of your tasks written down. You will no longer have to rely solely on your memory to remember important assignments.
2) Keep a Gratitude Journal
You may have heard of this tip from your favorite personal development guru, and it really does wonders for your personal and professional well-being!
Before you go to bed, force yourself to write down ten things that you are grateful for happening that day. You can write about that big sale that you closed or that extra mile that you walked in the morning.
Once you get your mind into a state of happiness and gratitude, you’ll fall asleep more easily.
3) Turn Off All The Lights
Sleeping in total darkness will help you fall asleep faster. Turn off the light, close the curtains and put your phone away or turn it off. Don’t allow bright lights or phone notifications to disrupt your sleep patterns.
Remember sellers, when you get better rest, you get better sales. Hard work is important, but don’t work yourself into exhaustion. Take care of yourself so you can take care of your sales and business as well!
What’s one tip you would provide a salesperson who needs to get more rest?
