International Day for Sleep: attention for sleep is crucial
Today is the International Day for Sleep; a day to focus on the importance of sleep. Sleep is crucial for health, both mentally and physically and when it is disturbed, it may largely affect many functions. In particular shift workers experience severe disturbed sleep with many consequences. What can they do about their problems? Within BioClock, in WP1.3, this is part of the research question on how personalized interventions may benefit shift workers. Amazing Erasmus wrote an article about the work of our researchers, including tips on how to protect your sleep. You can read the article here (Dutch).
