An inconsistent and unstable sleep schedule can wreak havoc on your body and mind in a number of ways, so it is therefore important that you do everything you can to fix it right away.
Men who have an inconsistent sleep schedule are typically less healthy overall than those who go to sleep at the same time and for the same amount of time each night.
There are lots of different reasons that you should start working on doing this as soon as possible.
You Will Prevent Weight Gain
There have been a lot of studies to strongly indicate that there is a direct connection between having an inconsistent sleep schedule and weight gain. If you are trying to lose weight or just want to keep those extra pounds off in the first place, it’s important that you work to stabilize your sleep schedule.
By getting to bed at approximately the same time each night and sleeping for the same number of hours, you can actually prevent weight gain. Getting your full eight hours of sleep each night will give you the best chance of maintaining a healthy weight.
Reduce the amount of time you waste
When you keep a daily routine, including your sleep schedule, you will give yourself a better shot at being productive on a regular basis. If you want to get as much as possible done every single day, it is very important to avoid sleeping too much.
While it can be tempting to sleep in late on your day off from work, you will be far less productive because of it. There are a lot of useful things that you could be doing instead of sleeping in, such as going to the gym, doing yard work, spending time with family, and much more.
The more you work on stabilizing your sleep schedule in a meaningful way, the more self-discipline you will develop. Even though you may already view yourself as a disciplined man, chances are there is still room for improvement.
The fact is that it takes a lot of discipline and inner strength to keep a consistent sleep schedule, and you will feel very proud of yourself for doing so on a regular basis. And while you may find it difficult to do this at first, rest assured that it will get easier with each passing day.
You Will Feel Better Overall
It is very likely that your inconsistent sleep schedule has you feeling less than 100% on a daily basis and you don’t even realize it. It’s easy to grow accustomed to feeling lousy when it’s all you know, but a more consistent sleep schedule can do wonders for how you feel physically and mentally.
You will have a lot more energy, which in turn will allow you to become even more productive every day. One of the most common reasons that so many people start to feel tired halfway through the day is because their sleep schedule is highly unstable and inconsistent.
You Increase Your Chances of Success
There is no doubt that you want to be as successful a man as possible, and part of the secret to doing that is getting the same healthy amount of sleep at the same time each night.
While it may seem pretty simple and basic, it can make a huge difference in your life. If you want to achieve great things, the fact of the matter is that you must adjust your sleep schedule if it has become inconsistent. Most people who are truly successful get into bed and go to sleep at around the same time each night, and know how important to is to get enough sleep.
Another good reason for you to start working on fixing your sleep schedule is that doing so can effectively prevent insomnia. Chances are you have experienced the hellish nightmare of this problem before, and correcting your sleep schedule can free you from it forever.
Insomnia can be a horrible thing to experience and can have lots of adverse effects on your overall health. By stabilizing your sleep schedule you will be able to keep insomnia at bay permanently.
If you want to keep the amount of stress in your life to an absolute minimum like everyone else, it is highly recommended that you make a point of adjusting your sleep schedule so that it’s not all over the place anymore. The more consistent your sleep schedule is, the more prone to stress your body and mind are going to be.
As a man you are statistically more vulnerable to stress on a physical level, which is all the more reason to work on getting your sleep schedule back on track as soon as possible. When you get into the habit of going to sleep at the same time on a consistent basis, you will most likely find that your stress level will drop quite a bit.
Things to Remember
There are a lot of different things that you can do to make stabilizing your sleep schedule easier, including buying a new mattress. If you are currently sleeping on an old lumpy mattress, it’s definitely time to get a new one. A comfortable mattress can make getting to sleep at the same time every day much easier.
It’s also important that you remove all distractions when you are first getting into the habit of going to bed at the same time every day, such as turning off the TV and not playing around on your phone or laptop while you are in bed.
The fewer distractions you have when trying to get to sleep, the more successful you will be. In the end you will be very glad that you decided to do this for yourself.
