Sleep is crucial to our wellbeing. It plays a large role in our cardiovascular, metabolic, immune, cognitive, mental and behavioral health. According to a report by Gallup and Casper, approximately 84 million American adults struggle with sleep. Stress at work may be one contributor to this struggle, creating a cycle of unproductivity, trouble with decision making and an increase in worker accidents.
