No one can do her best work if her mind is wool gathering. If an employee is thinking about the races, she is cheating her boss, for she cannot give her best service. If the employee is in the habit of being up late nights, she cannot concentrate her mind nor bring out the best there is in her. Nothing is so good for the hard worker, nothing will stand her in such good stead, as plenty of sleep.
Go to bed early. Get lots of sleep every night and you will be ready and strong for the fray of the next day. If you get plenty of sleep you are far ahead of your fellow employee who does not get enough sleep.
Sleep smooths out the wrinkles, builds up a storage battery in you and gives you confidence in yourself. You hold your head higher, your step is more elastic, your eyes are clearer, your mind works better, and your stomach does its full duty if you have taken plenty of time for sleep, for sleep is the plan of nature to restore the mind and the body.
Lack of sleep means wilful waste of your energies and a dulling of your abilities.
Business women pay for ability, keenness, alertness and capacity, and in proportion as you limit these qualifications by lack of sleep, so in proportion will your salary be kept down.
