Sleep is not optional for musicians

You might have heard many musicians talk about the hard work and dedication it takes to become successful. It takes hours of practice, songwriting, and recording to get your music out to an audience who can listen to it and enjoy it. This makes it tempting to sleep as little as possible so you can spend as much time as possible on your music but will this plan really give you the edge you need to achieve success?

According to science, you’re never at your best when you’ve been sleep-deprived. Medical studies have shown that sleep helps form memory for motor skills, and being sleep deprived results in negative effects on fine motor coordination. Motor skills are crucial if you play guitar, piano, or any other instrument that requires precision. Furthermore, several songwriting skills such as cognitive performance and creativity are negatively affected by a loss of sleep.

In regards to sleep, the best thing you can do to be a successful musician is to develop good, consistent sleeping habits and to make sure you have a comfortable sleeping area after days of hard work. Make a playlist of music that helps you feel relaxed before bed and make sure you have a good, comfortable foam mattress that is also sturdy enough to support you.
