More sleep isn’t necessarily enough to bring improvements, s
A new study based on the analysis of sleep schedules and productivity levels of 452 low-income works in Chennai over a span of a month found that even increasing participants’ sleep by half an hour did not improve their productivity, earnings, financial choices, sense of well-being, or even blood pressure. In fact, it only brought down the number of hours they worked. The researchers also found short naps during the day are more effective than taking breaks and aid in one’s productivity and well-being. In addition, they also found that the conditions the workers were sleeping in was responsible in their low-grade sleep quality.
