Do you feel that your job disrupts your sleep?

Do you feel that your job disrupts your sleep? New research suggests that specific elements of career life may be important for optimizing sleep health. 

Study Summary

This research, which included 3,000 adults, found that: 

  • Those who have few job demands or too many job demands are likely to have disrupted sleep. 
  • In comparison, moderate job demands predict optimal sleep health. Moderate demands may improve sleep schedule consistency and shorten the time it takes to fall asleep.
  • Those who feel they have more control over their work demands also have an increased likelihood of getting quality sleep. 

The Hearty Take

We know that poor sleep is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, cognitive decline and premature death – thus, it is extremely important to optimize sleep hygiene. Previously, it was thought that minimizing job demands would help improve sleep. However, this research suggests that having a balance of job demands may be a better recommendation when it comes to sleep health and the workplace.
