Excellent article in January’s Business in Calgary on how poor work/life balance negatively impacts sleep and consequently physical, mental, cognitive health, with input from Dr. Samuels. Check it out!
“When workers are continuously connected either to work or personal technology use like social media, this not only intrudes into sleep time but it also affects the quality of sleep that an individual gets. When we reduce the amount of sleep and/or impair the quality of sleep, there are physical, mental, cognitive and emotional consequences. Concentration, memory and mood are negatively affected by poor quality and inadequate sleep.”
