Get More Sleep with a Virtual Office Space
Do you get eight hours of sleep every night? How about seven? Wishful thinking, right? If you are like most of us, you are downright sleep deprived?
If so, you may be in need of what’s called ‘recovery sleep.’ A new study published in Sleep suggests that recovery sleep can reverse the damage of the sleep deprivation from which so many of us suffer.
“The additional hour or two of sleep in the morning after a period of chronic partial sleep loss has genuine benefits for continued recovery of behavioral alertness,” says principal investigator David F. Dinges, PhD, director of the Unit for Experimental Psychiatry and chief of the Division of Sleep and Chronobiology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pa. . “The bottom line is that adequate recovery sleep duration is important for coping with the effects of chronic sleep restriction on the brain.”
That’s good news. But what if you could get more sleep on a regular basis every night so that you weren’t sleep deprived to begin with? As I’ve said before, a virtual office space can help—even for entrepreneurs who work in New York City, otherwise known as the City that Never Sleeps.
When you telecommute from home, relying on a virtual office space instead of the traditional cubicle life, you can get more sleep because you don’t have to drive to work. In fact, if you want to work in your PJs until noon as you motor through a major deadline, you can do that with a virtual office space.
Virtual offices give you a prestigious business address, a local or 800 telephone number—and the freedom to sleep a little longer in the morning instead of fighting rush hour traffic. You can also boost your productivity with a virtual office space because you can spend work during what would have been your commute home. And, this may be the best part, you can take a power nap in the middle of the day and still have your phones answered professionally by a virtual receptionist.
So let’s get this straight. Am I telling you that you can sleep more and be more productive from a virtual office? Indeed, that’s exactly what I’m telling you. What’s more, a virtual office also saves you money. A virtual office space affords you a professional business image—at a fraction of the cost of renting traditional office space.
