Science Says You Should Sleep In
We’ve all at some point endured the dreadful 6 a.m. start. Some of us seem to be better at rising early than others, some of us can’t get out of bed until midday, I’m of the latter. Anything before 9 a.m. just kills me for the rest of the day. A lack of good sleep is a health risk, we have plenty of science pointing out the detrimental effects of a lack of shut-eye.
Now we have some evidence suggesting that starting work at anything earlier than 10 a.m. isn’t recommended. Huffington Post has detailed the findings, which come from Paul Kelley, a sleep scientist in England.
“Staff should start at 10 a.m.,” Paul Kelley, an honorary clinical research fellow at Oxford University’s Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute, told attendees at the British Science Festival, The Telegraph reports.
“We’ve got a sleep-deprived society. It is hugely damaging on the body’s systems because you are affecting physical emotional and performance systems in the body,” he added.
Not many of us need more of a reason to sleep for longer in the mornings. I certainly don’t. Now we have some good backup material to use when we explain to our boss the reasons for being so late. Check out the full article for all the details.
