#89: How to Get More Sleep

by

Thank you for listening to the Mindset for Life podcast!

What does it mean to “be the best version of yourself” in today’s world? The answers might surprise you, because they all start in the mindsets we embrace. Mindset for Life is a podcast from DrBCoach.Com where we explore thinking, attitudes, and habits that lead to how we behave and who we become. Yes, it matters in our work. In our relationships. And in our contributions. We’re working on taking things up a level a little more, one week at a time.

 

Mindset for Life is hosted by Bethanie Hansen, on the journey to live as a better version of herself more each day–just like you.

Have you wondered how to get more sleep while working online?

The main idea behind online work is that it can be done anytime, anywhere. With no boundaries, this type of work can easily take additional time and energy.

For example, if you’re an online educator, instead of working with a group of students all at once, teachers often write comments and feedback each individual student. This might happen more than one way, every week.  At first, this work might be surprising to anyone new to online teaching. After getting used to the idea of regularly reaching each student, balancing one’s time and energy becomes important in order to continue teaching well and to maintain work-life balance.

And, healthy sleep while being an online worker of any kind is a critical part of the balance.

Here are some great resources you might want to explore:
