Cut work-family conflicts at workplace for better sleep
A new study has examined the fact that if work-family conflicts are sorted out at the workplace then individual may lead to a better sleep at night.
Washington: A new study has examined the fact that if work-family conflicts are sorted out at the workplace then individual may lead to a better sleep at night.
The study conducted by Elsevier Health Sciences and constituted multi-institutional sleep researchers found that if a person reduces conflict between work and familial responsibilities, then he may sleep an hour more each week and will have greater sleep sufficiency than those who don't cut short their work-family issues.
Ryan Olson, PhD, and lead author said that the study was designed to reduce work-family conflict rather than addressing sleep problems, but surprisingly they observed sleep benefits.
Orfeu M. Buxton, PhD and lead investigator pointed out that the study shows that an intervention focused on changing the workplace culture could increase the measured amount of sleep employees obtain, as well as their perception that their sleep was more sufficient.
Dr. Lauren Hale, Editor-in-Chief of Sleep Health explained that the study demonstrates that interventions unrelated to sleep can improve sleep in the population, and the findings serve as a reminder that there are opportunities to deploy innovative interventions to improve sleep.
The study is published in Sleep Health, Journal of the National Sleep Foundation.
