Poor Sleep At Night Could Mean Decreased Work Productivity

Sleep issues unfortunately have a larger impact on your life than you might think. Researchers looked at data from 1,007 adults, ages 22 to 60, who took part in another study. Participants reported how much sleep they usually get at night on weekdays or work days. The data revealed those who were sleeping less, and those who were not getting good quality sleep were less productive. For example, those with mild insomnia experienced 58 percent more productivity loss than a person without sleep issues, and those who snored regularly experienced 19 to 34 percent more productivity loss, compared to those who didn’t snore. Study senior author, Dr. Michael Gardner, adds, “This is further evidence that sleep is not wasted time — it’s wisely invested time!”
