PLEASE STOP THIS….We changed the clocks this weekend, so . . . TODAY IS AWFUL (Insert Sarcasm Here). Here are three reasons why this time change is the WORST, and it’s all because of sleep deprivation: It leads to more accidents in traffic and at the workplace . . . it leads to more heart attacks . . . and it leads to today being an extremely unproductive day at work.
Here are three reasons why this time change is the WORST (HA!) . . . and they’re all connected to the side effects of being EXHAUSTED. WHAT A JOKE!
#1.) More traffic accidents and workplace injuries. The Monday after “spring forward,” there’s a significant increase in accidents, both on the road and at work. That’s a direct result of everyone trying to function on less sleep.
#2.) More heart attacks. There’s an increased heart attack risk today of about 10% . . . throwing off your body’s natural rhythms can be extra dangerous when you’re already at risk.
#3.) Less productivity. A study at Penn State found that the Monday after the switch to Daylight Savings, there’s a HUGE jump in online searches for frivolous things, like celebrity gossip, because everyone’s too tired to focus.
THIS DESERVES A BIG HUGE PLEASE STOP IT!
