December 3, 2016

Recent research from the RAND Corporation estimates that the lack of sleep among workers costs the U.S. economy up to $411 billion per year (2.28% of GDP), due to individuals' lower productivity levels, higher mortality risk, and poorer health and wellbeing.

I have definitely spent a lot of money in the quest for a good night's sleep. I'd love to be able to get a new mattress, but that's on the wish list for now as the ones I think will help are so expensive!

While I do love my pets, they are not getting a $10,400 bed. They will have to be happy with the ones they have now. I didn't know that sleep labs were that pricey either. This is a very interesting article.

Oh i can completely agree with this. I've tried changing my med, taking different meds or home remedies just to be able to sleep decently with no luck!

I am a firm believer in a four-day work week. So many other countries have this and also offer scheduled "nap" times for employees to take advantage of.

I had a period of time where the stress at a job was so intense, I couldn't sleep well at night because I kept thinking about all I had to do, and knowing I would never get it all done in time. It went on for months, and I had to resort to over-the-counter sleep meds to help me rest my mind. I used only meds with natural ingredients, and they helped, but the cause of why people lack enough sleep for me was too much of a workload. I think that should be researched, too. :)
