How serious are you sleeping?

  • Work from morning till night
  • I don’t have time to sleep every day for housework and parenting
  • It is difficult to refuse because there are many night relationships with business partners and colleagues
  • It’s been 30 minutes since I looked at Twitter somehow

There are many reasons why you can sleep less, such as.

However, in order to eliminate sleep deprivation, it is a major premise to secure enough sleep time.

Three Measures to Eliminate Sleep Deprivation

It’s a little too good for insects to get enough sleep while doing everything they want to do.

After all, if you want to get something, you have to throw it away.

And the following three are the key points for that.

  • Prioritization
  • Decluttering schedule (courage to be disliked)
  • Time management

In other words, it is important to carry out the flow of “determining priorities-> eliminating obstructive schedules-> managing schedules and securing sleep time”.

Let’s take a closer look at each point.


  1. Get a pen and a notebook.
  2. Write down what you want to do and what you have to do. (Any number is OK)
  3. Prioritize the exported items. (Bring sleep first.)
  4. Make a time schedule for the day and never move your sleep time!

Sleep time is the most important appointment.

First of all, it is important to be aware of this.

It’s definitely worth it.

First and foremost, get enough sleep.

Decluttering schedule (courage to be disliked)

After prioritizing, the next question is how to decline the request or invitation from the other party.

If it’s a drinking party, I refuse it.

If it’s useless overtime, I’ll go home quickly.

Also, if it’s housework, ask your husband to share it.

Housework is not a “wife’s” job.

Keep in mind that it is a “couple’s” job.

Don’t hold it alone, share your sense of ownership with your partner.


Also, when I receive an invitation to a drinking party at work, I understand that it is very difficult to decline.

“It’s a bad friend”

“He/She doesn’t know teamwork”

If you refuse, you’re scared to be labeled with such a secret, right?

But think twice.

Each person has a different life.

What you prioritize is also different.

You don’t have to prioritize others in red.

It’s the same for people in the same department of the company, family and friends.

Be confident

You can prioritize your priorities.

I will say it again.

Be confident

You won’t be disliked by that, and if you dislike it, it’s just that the other person is unreasonably trying to bind you.

The other party is bad.

You are right to prioritize your priorities.

Be confident and cut off unnecessary appointments.

Time management

Now that you have a schedule, confidence in yourself, and adjustments around you, all you have to do is do it.

It’s a simple “just do” job.

Rather, it’s a simple task.

Don’t think about anything, relax your shoulders, and when the time comes, let’s do it.
(If you think about it the other way around, you’ll come up with a reason not to do it, and you won’t be able to achieve it.)

Here’s one more tip to keep your schedule.

It works on almost the same schedule every day.

If you work on almost the same schedule every day, you will develop habits and perform tasks automatically.

On the other hand, if you spend your time on a different schedule every day, you will always have to think about what you have to do at this time, and you will use your brain area to keep your schedule.

Then, you are likely to be frustrated by the fact that you cannot concentrate on what you do → you cannot achieve your goals → your schedule shifts → your sleep time is delayed.

Therefore, it is highly recommended to “work on almost the same schedule every day”.


Lack of sleep reduces non-cognitive abilities and causes the following symptoms:

  • Asexually frustrated.
  • Communication with those around you becomes a hassle.
  • Remarks and actions become sloppy.

If you have any idea, please review your sleep.

Otherwise, you may make a big mistake at work someday, so be careful.


By the way…

Looking at the average sleep time by country within the OECD, the short sleep time of Japanese people stands out.

It can be said that Japan is a sleep-developed country.

On the other hand, it is said that Japan has lower labor productivity than Europe and the United States.

In the first place, even though sleep time is short, labor productivity does not increase.

The first thing to do is to take the plunge, reduce overtime, go home early, and get a good night’s sleep.

This will create a virtuous cycle of finishing work efficiently and getting to bed early.
