Billionaires are also aware of the importance of sleep. In order to stay productive, you need to get quality sleep that usually occurs from 10 pm till 6 am. Quality sleep helps you to keep your energy levels high and avoid burnout. Some billionaires take short naps during the day. This way, they rewire the brain and relax the body.
Moreover, multiple studies show that ultra-successful and busy people who take a short 15-minute nap in the afternoon are much healthier than those who run all day long without a break. Napping is highly beneficial to sleep-deprived people too. Most successful people don’t get the recommended 7 to 8 hours of sleep and thus sleep deprivation occur. Sleep deprivation triggers many health issues that reduce your productivity level.
Apart from negatively affecting the body, dehydration lowers your productivity. Billionaires sip their water throughout the day. You can notice Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg drinking their water.

Instead of dreaming of your future success, visualize it. Visualization boasts a mighty power and is the key to success. Close your eyes and visualize your success r goals. If you’ve just set a big goal, divide it into parts, and visualize how you earn billions, have tons of energy, and gain success. Ensure you don’t just visualize, but take actions towards your goals.
