Is Lack of Sleep a Public Health Crisis?

Sleep experts think so, including the Centers for Control and Prevention. One-third of US adults report getting less than the recommended amount of quality sleep. Lack of sleep is linked with many chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease and more. This can have a direct impact on workplaces, including making more mistakes, which often leads to more workplace injuries and higher health and disability costs. 

And now for the good news! 

We know that improved sleep helps increase productivity, reduce health risk and generate a greater feeling of well-being. That’s a win-win for employers and employees!
