NATIONWIDE - Most of us don't get enough sleep at night, and that can lead to poor performance at work the next day.
In fact, studies show our nation's chronic exhaustion is costing companies billions of dollars each year. But now some companies are waking up to the problem. And giving their employees some much needed rest. Some tips for a better night's sleep?
Go to bed at the same time each night and wake up at the same time each morning - even on weekends. Avoid alcohol three hours before bed and caffeine in the afternoon. And most importantly - turn off all electronic devices - including tv, ipads and computers - one hour before bedtime. Those gadgets put out daytime spectrum lighting that can block the production of melatonin - the hormone that helps you go to sleep.
