Poor sleeping is a concern for us all because it affects our ability to concentrate and results in mistakes. And, we feel terrible when we don’t get enough sleep.
Going to work on Monday must be really upsetting because a whopping number of people have a hard time sleeping on Sunday night. More people have problems on Sundays than any other night of the week.
How do we know? A study sponsored by Travelodge studied 3,500 adults. They found that a staggering 60% of workers sleep lousy on Sunday night. And more than 25% said that they were so tired from lack of sleep on some Sundays that they called in sick on Monday mornings.
The same group of people said they snoozed like babies at the end of the workweek on Friday night.
Sleep expert Dr. Neil Stanley blames the sleep problems on lazy weekend habits like sleeping late in the morning. “Sleeping patters have been messed up by (sleeping late) and late weekend nights,” says the expert from England’s Norfolk and Norwich U Hospital. “People don’t tend to do much physical activity on a Sunday and there is likely to be a big meal that will sit heavy in the stomach.”
His tips for beating Sunday insomnia are to stay active during the day and keep regular sleeping patterns. “What your body really wants is a regular routine. If you sleep in on a Sunday morning, then you will have a harder time sleeping that night.”
