UK workers are more interested in googling about sleep than getting sleep!
It’s an interesting idea and with 24/7 connectivity, it’s a completely plausible idea that more of us google about sleep than getting rest. HR News has reported that:
Searches for the phrase, “How much sleep do I need?” have grown up to 1,429% in the UK over the past 10 years (January 2007 – March 2017), according to Google Trends analysis by health insurance provider, AXA PPP healthcare, with searches for the phrase predominantly peaking at the start of the year, in January.
…It seems that sleep problems are widespread – out of the 2,000 Brits surveyed*, one in ten (10 per cent) say they always have problems with sleep or experience insomnia and 54 percent report often or sometimes have trouble sleeping.
Sleep is a necessity. It helps our body and mind regenerate, and allows us time to process the day. Losing sleep can impact on your mood, work, and relationships with people so HR News have put together some helpful information and some sleep tips that can be found here.
