CareerBuilder took a survey of more than 3,500 American workers and finds almost half lose sleep fretting over concerns about work. You know the feeling. You wake up in the middle of the night thinking of that to-do-list awaiting you in the office, and then not matter how hard you try you can’t get back to sleep. 1 in 4 says they aren’t getting enough sleep at night, and 60% say that lack of sleep has a negative impact on their work productivity. For about 8% of the workforce it’s so bad they say they resent their jobs.
You’ve heard time and again that doctors recommend a minimum of eight hours of sleep a night for optimal health, yet only 17% say they’re getting it. For most, it’s not close. 52% said they get anywhere between five and seven hours of shut-eye, and among those bleary eyed people populating cubicles around you 6% say they aren’t even getting five hours of sleep nightly.
And when they do get to sleep, 65 percent said they dream about work.
