Link to Sleep and Next Day Performance

Research from Philips reveals that one out of four professionals takes a nap in office time. Also tells 85% of the respondents that they performed better if they slept more, and it may not be surprising that 56% says thay don’t get a good night’s sleep. “The findings from the ‘Workplace Power Outage’ sleep survey support the link between sleep and workplace performance,” says Russell Rosenberg, PhD., Vice Chairman of the National Sleep Foundation and Director of the Atlanta School of Sleep Medicine and Technology. “The survey shows that inadequate sleep and poor sleep habits are primary factors for poor job performance, and can also lead to increased irritability, moodiness and lack of energy.” However it’s about quality sleep, which you need to recover well and restore for the next day. This often is underestimated. Philips advises to have exposure to a bright light after waking up. Probably, improve the sleep sounds better to me.

About joostboers

My passion? Being independent of other people's decisions. I'm horrified with what happens to pensions, or to see that people at relatively are put aside the economy because they simply are too old... at the age of 45+. Do you want to escape this threadmill too? Take action. You can do it.
