Are You Getting Good Z's?

I was reminded last night of the importance of having a good night's sleep. 

My wife purchased two new pillows over the weekend - you know, those "smart foam" types that everyone is now talking about.

When I first heard about them my initial thought was "Yeah, Yeah", but I must say that having slept on one for the first time last night, I am now a total convert.

When I placed my head on this new pillow, the first thing that went through my mind was "this feels like a brick!!!", but once I fell asleep, I cannot remember sleeping so well for a long, long, time. 

I have been working long hours on a big project recently, which has meant that the number of hours I have been sleeping has been greatly reduced and it was so refreshing to sleep so soundly. 

It reminded me that running a successful business is a marathon - not a sprint - so it is always important to get a good night's sleep, eat a healthy diet and exercise on a regular basis - after all, how can you enjoy being successful if you are constantly tired, unfit and have health issues due to bad diet?

Are you making sure that you are looking after your health and wellbeing while striving to take your business to the next level of success?
