There may be a scientific reason why you can’t stop hitting that ‘snooze’ button in the mornings. It’s actually because waking from sleep before 10 a.m. is biologically unnatural.
According to Dr. Paul Kelley, an Oxford University researcher, forcing your staff to work before 10 a.m. is equivalent to the ravages of torture. Getting up earlier than 10 also seems to create illness, stress and exhaustion in employees.
In an interview with the National Post, Dr. Kelley stated that,
“Before the age of 55, the circadian rhythms of adults are completely out of sync with normal nine-to-five working hours, posing a “serious threat” to performance, mood and mental health.”
