I’m sure many people will have some experience of drifting off to sleep in the wrong place or at the incorrect moment. We may have been in a boring meeting or seminar, fought to listen as someone droned on uninspirationally, seen ourselves semi-dozing at a room which was airless or too warm, or believed we had overindulged at dinner. I have regularly needed to synthesize my TV as a result of falling asleep before the end of a programme! Many of those situations are sleep-inducing. When a speaker or trainer delivers their address in a monotone, arranges each session to keep on interrupted without a break or features a dull message to send their important information can be lost as the viewer struggles to pay attention to hearing it. Breaking presentations and seminars into bite-sized chunks, perhaps involving interactive segments, a film or any varied personal work can help keep everyone else’s interest alert. In addition, it is important to be aware that if you regularly fall asleep in the wrong place it can be an indicator that all’s not well; yet there may possibly be a health condition, you may be feeling low, depressed, are doing too much, or will need to carry more personal time. If you find that you can’t stop yourself from regularly falling asleep and are finding it tough to keep alert it may be a good idea to organize a checkup with your doctor. Medication, diabetes and other health issues may need to get diagnosed and treated promptly. Additionally, can you need to consider if you are getting enough sleep, then the ideal quality and are planning to bed early enough.
