Sleep for a better work day
A good night's rest is often an easy habit to put on the back burner when life gets busy. Employers have a stake in this personal habit and should focus on helping employees learn how to get a good night's rest. Support for stress relief and career well-being is also key, as these are often triggers for employees to skimp on their rest.
A poor night's rests leads to:
A loss in productivity, the average worker can be tied to 11.3 days' worth of productivity loss each year due to insomnia
Bad mood, and increased likelihood of depression and anxiety
Poor memory skills, inattentiveness and increased mistakes
Heart Disease: It Can Happen at Any Age
Heart disease doesn’t happen just to older adults. It is happening to younger adults more and more often. This is partly because the conditions that lead to heart disease are happening at younger ages. February is Heart Month, the perfect time to learn about your risk for heart disease and the steps you need to take now to help your heart. Employees take the first step and have your heart health screening for free, contact Kimberly to sign up.
