The Virgin Pulse Institute announced the results today of a sleep study conducted in November 2013 with approximately 1,140 Virgin Pulse members, from three U.S.-based companies. Researchers found that:
- 76 percent of employees felt tired most days of the week
- 40 percent of employees doze off during the day once per month
- 30 percent of employees were unhappy or very unhappy with the quality or quantity of their sleep
- 15 percent doze off during the day at least once per week to once per day
Participants noted that lack of sleep impacted their energy and motivation to participate in physical activities and eat healthy foods. They experienced difficulty concentrating at work or remembering tasks, and felt more irritable at work and home. Sleeplessness also made it harder to manage stress, further impacting their difficulties sleeping.
