Know the consequences of a bad night's sleep

It is hard to perform our tasks efficiently when we feel unproductive and tired. Who has never felt the effects of a bad night's sleep? Tiredness, slow thinking, lower productivity, and migraine can not only impair employee’s focus but also incapacitate them. Moreover, a lack of rest is also a door open for viruses and bacteria to seep into your body and lower your immunity.
