Many of us have trouble mentally disconnecting from work. Even if we commit to not touch our electronic devices when we are home, often our brain still keeps processing the day. This is true whether you enjoy your work or not.
Odds are you’ve had—or currently have--a boss or colleague who sends emails at all hours of the day and night. Who hasn’t rolled their eyes upon seeing a 2:00 am time stamp upon checking their phone in the morning? Burning the midnight oil used to be a badge of honor. Now, thankfully, we know that getting a full seven to eight hours of sleep a night makes you a better leader and a better worker.
