Stress?  What Stress? 

We wouldn't really be addressing Work Life Balance, if we didn't have something to say about stress. A useful site can be found at How to Master Stress.


As you getting enough sleep?

In a recent survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation fifty-one percent (51%) of the American workforce reports that sleepiness on-the-job interferes with the amount of work they get done. Forty-percent (40%) of employees admit that the quality of their work suffers when they are sleepy, and nearly one out of five (19%) report making occasional or frequent work errors due to sleepiness. Sleep experts recommend at least 8 hours of sleep a night in order to function properly, yet one-third of American adults (33%) sleep only 6.5 hours or less nightly during the work week. Additionally, a full forty-five percent (45%) of adults agree that they will sleep less in order to accomplish more. 

One out of four adults (24%) has difficulty getting up for work two or more days per week, and 27 % of adults say they are sleepy at work two or more days a week. At least two-thirds of adults report that sleepiness makes concentrating (68%) and handling stress (66%) on the job more difficult. Fifty-eight percent (58%) say that making decisions and solving problems are more difficult when they are sleepy. Listening to co-workers is more difficult when sleepy, according to 57% of respondents. Overall, employees estimate that the quality and quantity of their work is diminished by about 30% when they are sleepy.
