GETTING INADEQUATE SHUT-EYE CAN AFFECT YOU AT WORK BEYOND JUST MAKING YOU FEEL SLUGGISH.
Ready to spring forward? Daylight saving time returns at 2 a.m. Sunday, when it magically becomes 3 a.m., and while you may be losing an hour of sleep, springing forward can help reset your sleep schedule. Apart from making sure to set your alarms correctly, you can use daylight saving to reboot sleeping habits.
Why is this important? According to a new survey from CareerBuilder, 1 in 4 workers (26 percent) feel they do not get enough sleep each night. While eight hours may be the doctor-recommended amount of sleep time each night, less than 1 in 5 workers (17 percent) say they actually reach this goal. Half of workers (52 percent) log an average of five to seven hours of sleep each night, while 6 percent average less than five hours per night.
