Sleep, performance and stress - your LinkedIn LIVE replay

By David Lawrence |

Did you know that at any one time, over one-third of us suffer from sleepless nights? Turning up drunk for work is not acceptable but turning up sleepy can be seen as heroic - why is this? For business, poor sleep is thought to account for losing up to 2% of gross domestic product (GDP). 

We were joined by sleep expert Dr Neil Stanley in our LinkedIn LIVE event ‘Sleep, performance and stress - your guide to how to sleep well'. Where we looked at some misconceptions about sleep, the hard facts and some practical take-aways.
