When you’re feeling tired do you make good financial decisions? I don’t.
Being able to survive on fewer hours of sleep has become a badge of honour. But life’s not about surviving, is it? It’s about flourishing.
When we are tired:
- We’re more likely to impulse buy ‘pick me ups’.
- We’re more likely to spend money on convenient food.
- We’re more susceptible to riskier ‘get rich easy’ investments
That can mean less money for experiences that truly bring joy.
It can also lead to working harder to earn more to fund the conveniences that help us work longer and harder.
Are you starting to see the slippery slope?
Make better decisions and earn more
Consistently getting enough good sleep helps us have the energy and state of mind to make good money decisions.
Quality sleep also helps us be at our best in our work, which then improves our ability to earn and grow our income.
There are many things that can affect our sleep quality, including worry, snoring, sleep apnoea, and sensitivity to the elements.
Yes, many of the fixes to sleep quality do cost more and not an insignificant amount.
Given how fundamental sleep is to our quality of life, investing in strategies to help you consistently get enough quality sleep is money well spent.
And if it’s money you’re losing sleep over then money coaching is a good investment.
Let’s get physical
