According to a study across four American companies, the cost of sleep deprivation ranges from $2,500 per employee per year to a staggering $3,156 (Patrick J. Skerrett, Harvard Business Review). The Journal of Sleep Research found that a night of sleep loss can even affect basic daily routines.
Around 35% of us get the required 8 hours of sleep each night. Being in bed by 10 PM is an essential start. Renowned neurologist, Kulreet Chaudhary, MD. says the best hours of sleep are between 10 pm to 2 am. Think #sleep10to2.
Poor sleep affects our creativity, emotions, intellect, and efficiency. Insufficient sleep has also been linked to cardiovascular disease, cancer, stroke, accidents, diabetes, bacterial infection in the blood, and hypertension (Kochanek et al., 2014).
Exhaustion can cause relationship and work stress, postpartum depression, failed breastfeeding, and infant deaths. Dr. Christopher Barnes, a researcher at Washington University, discovered that the less an employee sleeps, the more likely they are to lie, cheat, and steal.
Babies can’t thrive without sleep and neither can their caregivers. Parents lose an average of 2 hours of sleep per night until a baby is 5 months. According to Dr. William C. Dement, from then until a child is two, parents lose an average of an hour sleep every night.

Ms. Montanez is a very professional and detail-oriented individual. She has superior organizational skills and is always reliable. She worked well with our clients on a daily basis and provided exceptional career coaching. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Rachel.
Rachel’s creativity and coaching skills enable her to generate effective ideas and career development steps. She is dynamic and insightful! Since receiving her career coaching, I’ve gained clarity on long-term goals, been invited to speak internationally and got opportunities to advance professionally.
The work we did together helped me value the extent of my skill set and achieve my short to medium term goals. We also explored salary negotiation techniques, in particular how to set and achieve realistic objectives regarding pay and bonuses. I’ve now become more decisive, confident, recognized more at work, and have been rewarded in my career.
Rachel came to my business to speak with a group of parents about the importance of sleep and how it impacts work, parenting, and health. She shared tips on the best time of night to get optimal sleep, how to fit enough sleep into a busy schedule, and other practical tips. The group really enjoyed learning from her. She was encouraging and engaging.
