How much sleep do you need

How much sleep do you need to stay motivated?

You need approximately about 8 or 9 hours of sleep a night.

Ideally, you need 8 hours of sleep. The scientist says we need at least 8 hours of sleep to recover our body, mind and muscles to grow.

Your brain, body and muscles need to rest to recover for the next day until your fully recovered with loads of energy, strength and motivation to be productive.

Going to sleep is like charging your phone. Your phone battery will run out, you need to charge your phone until it’s fully charged like we need to sleep to recover our body. Your phone needs to recharge the batteries, our body needs to recover and rest.

Sleep is very important for your health, you need approximately 8 hours of sleep to help you recover your mind, body, muscles to grow and energy to get active.

Getting enough sleep helps you with your motivation for success because when you get enough sleep, your body, brain and muscles are recovered.

You have the energy to be productive and do the things that you want to accomplish.

Getting enough sleep always help you to stay motivated to do things that you really want to achieve. It helps you to be more productive and good for your brain to stay active.

Your brain is always active and that’s why you dream when you sleep. Our brain is working all the time when we sleep. Your brain needs to rest to recover for the next day when you learn the knowledge, skills and many other things for your mind.

When you get enough sleep it helps your brain to think quicker, work smarter, using your own initiative and common sense. Common sense is all about using your head to think smarter rather than being stupid.

You use your brain to work to think, gain knowledge and plan ahead.

That’s why you use your brain to work. Your brain is working all the time even when you’re asleep because your brain got the memory to remember things you’ve learnt from the past.

Sleep is to help you to recover your brain from learning, gaining knowledge and your brain to work.

Not getting enough sleep 

When you don’t get enough sleep, your brain is less active, couldn’t think ahead and you will make mistakes from not getting enough sleep.

That’s why sleep is very important for your health because your body needs to rest to recover until your fully charged up.

Not getting enough sleep is bad for your health because you can get ill easily, you become less fit, less strong and it can affect your health.

When you don’t get enough sleep, you can lose focus and concentration on your work for not getting any sleep because your body is not fully recovered.

A bit like your phone is not fully charged, you still got 50% battery charge on your phone and it’s not enough battery to charge.

Your body, mind and muscles need to be fully recovered, not half recovered, it needs to be fully recovered and get enough sleep that you can get out of bed automatically.

When you don’t get enough sleep, you will feel like not want to get up, you just want to sleep and get comfortable.

When you don’t get enough sleep, you feel more tired, sluggish, lazy and unproductive.

It can be bad for your concentration for your work for not getting enough sleep, you lose concentration and focus for the work you meant to be doing. Your brain will not work for not getting enough sleep because you’re not fully recovered, still got some more sleep to catch.

When you don’t get enough sleep, you get angry for no reason and you get depressed. You get lazier and unproductive for not getting enough sleep, you can lose motivation and you just don’t have the mood to do anything.

If you have 4 hours of sleep, 2 hours of sleep or no sleep at all. Your body, brain and muscles will be very tired and it will be bad for you. You need to get some sleep to help you get recover so you feel fresher when you had enough sleep. If you don’t get any sleep at all, your brain won’t work and you can’t do anything.

Not enough sleep can affect work or anything in general, you can’t focus, you can’t concentrate, you can’t think and you can’t learn.

You will feel sluggish for not getting enough sleep because you won’t have any energy to do the things that are productive like housework, gardening, working out in the gym, reading books and anything that keeps you busy either physically busy or mentally busy.

Sleep too much 

Too much sleep can be bad for you because you will feel lazy, sluggish, unproductive and no motivation to get out of bed.

It’s very easy to get lazy when you don’t have any plans to do for the day if you got a plan, you will get up naturally to do something that is on your plan like meeting up with your friends. Having a plan for what your going to do gives you the motivation to get up in the morning. For example, you’re going on a holiday, your flight is at 11 in the morning and you have to be up early to catch your flight.

Sleeping too much can destroy your motivation for success because all you want to do is sleep all-day, not think about anything and be unproductive.

When you sleep too long, you wake up late in the afternoon instead of morning and you just don’t want to do anything. That’s why sleeping too much is bad for you, it makes you feel lazy and unproductive. For example, you woke up at 12 in the afternoon, you got nothing to do, no plans and do nothing all day. That’s how you end up being lazy for sleeping too much. Too much sleep can make you feel tired.

If you had about 10 hours of sleep, 11 hours of sleep or 12 hours of sleep, that’s too much sleep.

You don’t need to sleep too much for your body to recover, I know sleep is important for you, but you don’t need to sleep that much to make you energised and motivated to work hard.

The maximum of sleep you need is 8 hours of sleep, not less or more than 8 hours, you need approximately 8 hours of sleep to help you to recover your body.

You can’t sleep too less and you can’t sleep too much.

Ideally, you need 8 hours of sleep to help you to refresh your brain to work, think and plan ahead.

How to wake up early in the morning feeling motivated 

If you want to wake up early in the morning feeling motivated, you need to get enough sleep to get yourself going in the morning with motivation.

If you have late nights every night, you won’t be able to wake up early in the morning feeling motivated, you be too tired and feeling weak that’s because you’re not getting enough sleep.

Wake up early in the morning takes self-discipline because it’s hard to get up in the morning and feeling motivated to do something. When you got nothing to do, you just don’t want to get up, you just want to stay in bed and be lazy. That’s because you don’t have any plans to do.

If you want to wake up early in the morning feeling motivated, you need to go to bed earlier and get enough sleep. You need to get your 8 hours of sleep if you want to wake up early in the morning with motivation.

If you go to bed like 11 at night, half 11 at night or 12 midnight, you’re not going to make it in the morning, you’re going to wake up about 9 or 10 in the morning and still feeling tired.

If you go to bed at about 8, 9 or 10 at night, wake up at 4 or 5 in the morning and feeling motivated will be ideal. When you go to bed early, you wake up early and you get your 8 hours of sleep which is enough sleep. When you go to bed late, you wake up late and still tired.

It’s hard to be a morning person because in the morning is normally cold and dark.

You got to change your morning routine to a productive routine like going for an early morning run, read books, writing articles on your website, do some housework and invest in yourself learning a skill.

To wake up early in the morning takes self-discipline because it’s not easy to do when you’re so used to of doing things in the evening before you go to bed. In the evening you might be too busy playing computer games and stayed up very late.

You might be having a hard time to have an early night to get motivated in the mornings because playing too many games can destroy your motivation for success.

You might have to consider to change your habits if you want to be a morning person.

To change your habits, routine and waking up in the morning takes self-discipline and you got to motivate yourself to do it.

I struggle to wake up early in the morning to get motivated because I go to bed quite late. I go to bed at about half 11 at night or 12 ish midnight, wake up about half 9 or 10 ish in the morning and still feeling tired in the morning.

I need to discipline myself before I motivate you on my website because my website is a motivational site.

This is a motivational website is to motivate everyone and me.

When you can wake up early in the morning with motivation, it’s going to be a lot of changes and you’re going to feel amazing. Being motivated, productive can make a change and that’s how you succeed. Being a morning person is hard because it’s different, you’re not used to of getting up early and it takes self-discipline. It can help you to change your life to a better person.

I hope this blog post is informative and motivating. Feel free to share this post on social media.

  2. Sleep is such an overlooked natural therapy for modern people. We tend to think that we can work better by sleeping less and the result can be very devastating for our mental and physical growth. I’m definitely guilty of that, trying to juggle between a day job and a blog but realized that cutting down on my sleep is not the way to go. On most days, I get about 6-7hours and if I can afford 8 hours, that would be the best.

  3. I’ve listened to some interesting podcasts about sleep and it’s amazing just how important it is for our overall health!! 

    Most people I’ve talked to have been able to dedicate more time to sleeping lately. It will be interesting to see if the good sleeping habits make a noticeable difference in well-being and people continue their emphasis on getting a healthy night of enough sleep. It has definitely been a welcome force in our household.

  5. Thank you for dealing with this important topic. Before this coronavirus crisis I was normally getting 4 – 5 hours of sleep during the night. And was really feeling tired. So, when the Isolation process begun I really needed to sleep.

    I’m being super productive these days. There are so many things I want to do, but I’m not sacrificing the hours of sleep. I’m sleeping between 8 and 9 hours every night. I know it should be just 8 hours but probably because my body is still adjusting I sleep a bit more.

  7. This has been an awesome article full of some great advice. My sleep schedule is usually one of the biggest habits I struggle to change.

    I too often do as you said and go to bed late, wake up late, and still feel tired. It is strange that even though you get the same amount of sleep it somehow feels different when you wake up early in the morning. I am going to be putting a lot of your advice here to use to see if I can create a more successful routine for myself. Thanks so much!

  8. For me, i think we all need 60% sleep and 40% sleep all through this isolation period as when work starts ans all activities resume,the processes would be too fast for us and when might no have time to have quality rest….if you understand the importance quality rest then you would take this opportunity.
