Did y'all have a good weekend? I hope so. This weekend was restful for me...which is a good thing because I typically run around a ton! Speaking of being sleep deprived. I read this and thought Um...duh!
Third Of American Workers Aren’t Getting Enough Sleep
A new study says 30% of American workers are sleep deprived, and are getting six or fewer hours of sleep a day. The report from the Centers for Disease Control shows that 40.6 million workers are getting less than the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep per day. Those most at risk are anyone working late at night, which includes parents with young children. And if you’re not sleeping enough, you could end up harming yourself or others. In fact drowsy drivers have been involved in up to 20% of car crashes. The age group most likely to be sleep deprived is the 30 to 44 range, with 44% of people on the night shift needing more ZZZs compared to 28.8% of daytime workers.
