I am sure many of us will have some connection with dropping off to sleep in the wrong place or at the wrong time. We may have been at a boring meeting or seminar, fought to listen as some one droned on uninspirationally, seen ourselves semi-dozing at a room which has been or overly warm, or believed we’d overindulged at dinner. I’ve regularly needed to reposition my TV due to drifting off to sleep before the end of a programme! Many of these situations are understandably sleep-inducing. If a speaker or trainer supplies their language in a monotone, arranges each session to continue interrupted without a break or includes a boring message to send their relevant information can be lost as the audience struggles to pay attention to hearing it. Breaking conferences and demonstrations in to bite-sized chunks, perhaps involving interactive sections, a picture or a few diverse private work can help to keep everybody’s interest alert. Additionally, it is important to take note that when you regularly drift off in the wrong place it is definitely an indicator that all’s not perfectly; yet there may be a health condition, you may be feeling low, depressed, are doing too much, or will need to have more personal time. If you discover that you simply can’t prevent yourself from regularly falling asleep and find it tough to keep alert it might be a very good idea to arrange a check-up with your doctor. Medication, diabetes and other health conditions may need to be diagnosed and treated promptly. Additionally, do you need to consider if you should be getting enough sleep, then the right quality and are going to bed early enough.
