40 Hours of Work Calls for 40 Hours of Sleep


Our work has a big impact on our sleep. If work isn’t going well, it can lead to restlessness and disturbed sleep at night. The 2019 State of America’s Sleep research study by The Better Sleep Council found that when one (work or sleep) isn’t going well, the other suffers significantly. Full-time workers put in an average of 8.5 hours a day during the week. Working adults in the State of America’s Sleep study report sleeping an average of 6.84 hours a night – meaning we spend about 100 more minutes working than in bed every day, and we’re getting far less than the 7-8 hours of sleep recommended by experts. The more we sleep, the more apt we are to take on work’s issues and become a more effective performer. Learn more about how missed sleep can impact your performance at work.
