Assoc Prof Danny Eckert comments on the Sleep Health Foundation report
A Deloitte report commissioned by the Sleep Heath Foundation has been released on the truly staggering cost that lack of sleep inflicts on the nation each year.
Assoc Prof Danny Eckert comments on the report launched this week in the parliament in Canberra.
Assoc Prof Eckert said that one of the lesser well-known causes of sleep problems is due to people commuting further to travel to and from work.
“And almost 20 per cent of Australians are shift workers, he said, You could really benefit from a short nap during the day, between 10 to 20 minutes, to optimise performance.
But too much sleep during the day can disturb night sleep. We can fix the health and productivity of the nation if we can fix our sleep.”
