Job Dissatisfaction Results in Less Sleep
The Institute of Social and Economic Research and the Economic and Social Research Council conducted a study structured around sleep patterns of people in the United Kingdom. After questioning 40,000 families, they found a direct link between job satisfaction and getting a good night’s sleep. For example, 14% of the people who reported being the most dissatisfied in their places of employment slept less than six hours a night, and 33% of unsatisfied employees reported poor sleep, while only 18% of happy workers complained about their sleeping patterns.
In fact, one in every ten people in the United Kingdom use some sort of sleep aide pill at least three times a week, but scientists warn that a “quick fix” from chemicals isn’t a legitimate substitute for good, solid rest.
“There’s almost a macho image around not needing much sleep”, said Professor Sara Arber from the University of Surrey. This is unfortunate, because getting too little sleep can lead to a number of health problems, including obesity, heart disease and diabetes because doing anything against what your body naturally needs, will have negative physiological consequences.
If you have a hard time getting adequate sleep, it’s important not to continually take sleeping pills to remedy your problem. In addition to getting to bed at a decent hour, trying to find ways to increase your job satisfaction could also help you out considerably.
