SLEEP YOURSELF TO A BETTER TOMORROW
Sleeping better is one of the fastest and most efficient ways to improve our performance, our mood, our focus and our energy levels. Research however shows that we now sleep on average a whole hour less than we did in the 1940s and as we climb the corporate ladder our sleep often suffers even more.
Sleep loss has a very negative impact on neurocognitive functions like short-term memory and more complex mental tasks such as multi-tasking, decision-making and problem-solving. When we sleep our memory performs a cleaning shift. The neural connections that collect important data are strengthened and those created from irrelevant information are removed.
Even a reduction in sleep of just a few hours has a real impact on our impulsiveness, coordination, focus and slows down our speed of response significantly; we might find ourselves slurring our words when speaking as if we had had a few glasses of wine.
Staying up for 24 hours has a similar effect to having 4 glasses of wine—facts worthwhile considering before pulling an all-nighter at work.
If we are awake for more than 17 hours our response speed is up to 50% slower and we would not be considered able to safely drive a car.
37% of people with severe sleeping problems also are at risk for a burn-out.
