Why a better sleep is good for work efficiency

Studies have shown that Sleep disorders and inadequate rest are among the major cause of office fatigue. It can even get worst; experts said that workers with inadequate sleep are 2 times more likely to get injured at work, than workers who rested well. One might be tempted to say ‘sleep is a safety concern at work’. Of course, sleep disorders increase the risk of office fatigue, thereby reducing productivity and overall performance of workers. Below are some sleep disorders you might want to get screened for by your doctor if you are faced with persistent tiredness at work.

  1. Insomnia: A condition characterized by a frequent interruption of sleep, inability to sleep, and lack of adequate rest. You may find it so difficult to go back to sleep if woken. This leads to a gross alteration of the circadian cycle; keeping up late at night and waking up too early in the morning. The lack of rest here results in sleepiness and fatigue during office hours.
  2. Restless leg syndrome: In this situation, you feel a pulling, tingling, or crawling sensation on the legs during sleep. Sleep is interrupted as you turn or pull your legs in a reaction to the sensation. This disturbs sleep patterns and results in tiredness at work.
  3. Narcolepsy: This is characterized by a sudden uncontrollable urge to sleep for an abnormally long time in a day. It is usually not common but the abnormally increased urge to sleep induce tiredness during office hours.
  4. Sleep Apnea: With about 10seconds of obstruction of breath at intervals, obstructive sleep apnea alters your sleep pattern leading to unrestful sleep.
  5. Drug reactions and caffeine: Benzodiazepines are examples of over the counter drugs that may affect your sleep, most sedatives and stimulants may alter your circadian cycle and cause work-hour sleepiness. Caffeine could be active for 4-7 hours and may affect sleep.
