A poll of around 10,000 individuals found that when worn out, workers are 23 per cent less satisfied with their jobs, with 24 per cent admitting to lower levels of productivity. The results of the survey show that not only are tired employees less motivated and productive, but also that their colleagues have to shoulder extra work.
More than one in four workers (27 per cent) regularly go to work feeling tired and unrefreshed with half of us going into work feeling over-tired more than 20 times a year.
Dr Ian Mak from Cromwell Hospital in West London has warned that if sleep deprivation continues over a long period of time it can lead to medical issues, effecting decision making, reaction time, judgement and can also lead to obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and mental health problems.
If you are struggling at work as a result of lack of sleep then one option worth considering is that of hypnotherapy. The process of hypnosis can help individuals to relax on both a mental and physical level and can often help to uncover the root cause of the sleep issue. Techniques used may include that of visualisation techniques and the process will help to remove bad habits which prevent a good nights sleep and will instead replace them with more beneficial ones.
