      Introduction. Scientific evidence is growing that adequate sleep is a biological need for life similar to the need to eat and drink and is critical to maintain life and health and to work safely (Everson, ).Sleep duration of 7–8 hours a night is associated with a lower risk of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, myocardial infarction, and cerebral vascular accidents as well as.   When the data team at RescueTime analyzed million hours of working time, they discovered that most workers average just 2 hours and 48 minutes of productive time per day—a far cry from the 8 hours we all think we have. And because employees have less time for productive work than they think during the workday, many end up taking work home.

      You and your company can work less, be more productive, and make time for what's really idea of success embraced by the global economy means being always-on, never missing an opportunity, and outworking your peers. But working ever-longer hours is't sustainable for companies or individuals. Fatigue-induced mistakes, whether in the operating room or factory line, cost companies. I am often asked, “How long will my job search take?” My answer is almost always, “It depends.” I work, primarily, with those in the 2nd half of life—which is code for those over 50 years of age.. I tell them that a really short job search is three takes almost three months for a company to decide to hire someone, post the job, interview candidates, make an offer, and then.

      “A cluttered desk is a cluttered mind.” “If you had more hours in the day, you'd be more productive.” These are common productivity tropes you've probably heard before, and you may. Statistically speaking, 50 per cent of the nurses expressed to have had more energy after a six-hour workday, compared to 20 per cent of the eight-hour the same time, a per cent.
