How much sleep she gets: 5 to 6 hours
Daily schedule: “I start at 7 a.m. because my son has to be at school by 8:48 a.m. and my office opens at 10 a.m. So I get up at 7 to give me enough time to shower, make breakfast, get him up and prepare him for an awesome day. Then I’m off to the office. Because I go to bed so late, my body’s internal clock will not physically allow me to get up earlier. I’ve tried. Even if I set the clock for earlier, I don’t even hear it. Now, if I go to bed earlier, at 10:30 p.m. — when I prefer — then I’m easily able to get up at 5 a.m.!
How sleep impacts life and work: “I’m a mom, a partner, and I own a company with a staff of 13 people. I’m pulled in hundreds of directions a day and my attention is often diverted throughout with other responsibilities, requests and questions. I’ve noticed that I am far more productive and efficient when I get a full eight hours of sleep. On the days when I can get 10 hours, I’m unstoppable. That’s why I’m working to be much more intentional with my time and unplug by 10 p.m. each night.”
