Get More Sleep if You Want to Make More Money
Hopefully you got caught up on sleep this weekend. But if you didn't, here are four ways it can affect your work if you make a habit of it.1. You'll be less productive. A study in 2011 found that people who have trouble sleeping cost their company 7.8 days of productivity a year.
2. You'll get paid less. Another recent study found that people who weren't getting enough sleep made an average of 16% MORE when they started getting just ONE extra hour of sleep a night.
3. You'll take more sick days. A recent study found that people who normally get less than five hours, OR more than 10 hours of sleep a night take up to nine more sick days a year.
4. You'll get burnt out. In 2012, researchers at Harvard found that people who get less than six hours of sleep a night are more likely to get sick of their job. And they're also more likely to stress out about their job when they're NOT working.
