Is Lack Of Sleep Affecting Your Job Performance?

Most of us know that getting a good night’s sleep is important, but too few of us actually get eight hours of sleep. When we sleep, our brain “cleans” itself in order to learn and remember. It is believed that this is a time when the brain strengthens and builds new pathways between cells. When cell pathways are strong, it helps us concentrate and react to situations around us. So when we’re sleep deprived, our process is slowed down and our ability to make god decisions is compromised.

Imagine going in to work sleep deprived—how is your job performance that day? Are you still doing your job to fullest or is your performance less than stellar? Imagine sleep deprivation on a regular basis, constantly functioning–if you can call it that–in a cloudy state. Being groggy on the job can lead to mistakes, and depending on what line of work you’re in—that can be costly, or even dangerous.

Sleep needs vary across ages and are especially impacted by lifestyle and health.

Ask yourself:

  • Are you productive and happy on seven hours of sleep? Or does it take you nine hours of quality rest to get you into high gear?
  • Do you have health issues such as being overweight? Are you at risk for any disease?
  • Are you experiencing sleep problems?
  • Do you depend on caffeine to get you through the day?
  • Do you feel sleepy when driving?

It’s important to assess your sleep needs and also to examine what lifestyle factors are affecting the quality of your sleep such as work schedules and stress. Stimulants like coffee and energy drinks, alarm clocks, and external lights—including those from electronic devices—interferes with our natural sleep/wake cycle.
