Getting on top of your finances when you feel exhausted all the time can be tough. Sleep deprivation can make your brain fuzzy, and even simple tasks like paying the bills may seem hard to achieve.
However, by fixing your sleep problems you can get on top of your finances and maybe even help you get that promotion you’ve been dreaming of.
We explain how you can start looking after your pennies by dealing with your insomnia.
There are two ways that one can tackle their finances; saving more and earning extra. Saving is usually the first on one’s hit list, as they look for areas that they can perhaps reign in on spending or cut out unnecessary purchases. But did you know that sleeping better can help you with this?
Before looking at individual money-saving methods, it’s worth highlighting that a good night’s sleep can help you approach this task in two extremely helpful ways. Firstly, money is one of the biggest stress factors worldwide. In fact, a study by the American Psychological Association in 2015 found that it is the leading cause of stress among Americans, both rich and poor.
Sleep is known to help lower your blood pressure and stress levels, and so can be a great way to start tackling our finances. It is of course, also worth noting that stress can be one reason that we suffer from insomnia. So, effective insomnia therapy and a clear-plan with our finances can aid each other nicely.
The other way that sleep can help us with our finances is that it allows us to think more logically. Sleep clears the mind of unnecessary toxic waste and leaves us more energised, this means we can approach our finances with clarity.
With these two steps in place, we can begin to look at areas of our lives where we can save money. By thinking more clearly, we can make better spending decisions and avoid spending cash that we don’t need to. Insomnia therapy and better sleep will also leave you with more energy to do tasks yourself. For example, perhaps you’ll make lunch for yourself in the morning rather than eating out every day? It’ll also ensure that your bills are paid properly and on time!
And, by lowering your stress levels, you’ll make health savings too. We’ve previously looked at how overcoming insomnia can help you to lose weight and exercise more, all of which will help to keep you healthier and lower your medical expenses. Not to mention decreasing any stress-related illnesses too.
And, finally, sleeping well reduces the feeling of hunger that we feel in the morning, as well as the feeling of tiredness. This means that we won’t be spending on junk food and caffeine all day!
Alongside savings, many look at ways that they can earn extra too, perhaps through a promotion or overtime. It’s a well-known fact that sleeping well helps with productivity and job performance, which could allow us to work those extra hours or show the boss we deserve a promotion.
You’ll even have more energy to perhaps look for new opportunities. Maybe a job elsewhere or side hustles in your spare time. It can be hard to think about these things when sleep is a weight on our mind. But, insomnia therapy can help free us of this and give us the extra motivation that we need to look elsewhere.
By making money savings in the areas that we have looked at above, and having the energy to think about ways you can bring home more bacon, you’ll find that sleeping better will help you to quickly get a better plan of action in place with your financials.
As this is a piece about finances, it makes sense to only talk about smart investments! Our online insomnia therapy has been proven to be highly effective.
You can cut out the need for the continued purchasing of sleeping pills, energy bars and lattes, and instead make a few small investments upfront for much greater return. All of the insomnia therapy is conducted online, so you can be in the comfort of your own home while you receive help.
And, with tailored plans just to you and the research to support it, you can start taking the necessary steps towards getting a more restful sleep. This, in turn, will allow you to shift your attention towards getting your finances in order too!
And, as the New Year is underway, keeping your finances in order is something that you should strive for all year round. As is getting good, restful sleep as often as possible. So these two areas shouldn’t just be targets for 2018, they should be targets that you want to hit consistently.
As we highlighted above, insomnia, while stressful for the sufferer, is curable. With plenty of research supporting insomnia therapy, and online treatments at that, there are clear steps that you can take to get your nightly routine back in your control.
Not only will you feel more energised and rested during the day, but you’ll be able to commit to your other resolutions too, such as making more time for others, losing weight and exercising more, and, of course, those pesky finances!
