Sleep Loss Equals Productivity Drops

Dr. Ed O'Malley of Sleep HealthCare of Connecticut wrote an article recently for the Fairfield Country Business Journal about how lack of sleep can impact productivity.

Here are two of the striking statistics Ed cites:

  • One third of United States adults suffer from symptoms of insomnia.
  • Sleep disturbances can cost employers around $2,000 a year per employee.

If you do the math on that, the total costs are astronomical, and that's just the cost to the bottom lines of businesses. There are also costs to personal health (which you can also read about in Ed's article).

One of the tools Ed uses at the sleep center is neurofeedback. In my experience, improvements in sleep are very often one of the first things my clients report, sometimes as quickly as after one session. And as my clients often say, sleeping better makes everything better.
