Don’t feel tired? You still might be sleep-deprived

If you only get a few hours of sleep at night, you probably need an herbal insomnia supplement from Herbal Groups to help you get more rest. You might be thinking, "But I feel fine throughout the day, I'm not that tired, I don't need to change my habits," and you'd be wrong. According to a team of researchers from Brigham and Women's hospital, people who get less than eight hours of sleep at night may be hindering their work performance, even if they don't feel tired.

Scientists set out to determine how a lack of sleep could affect people's ability to identify important information during a visual search test. They found that there is a distinct difference between an individual's ability to locate the information when they were well-rested, versus when they had slept less, regardless of the fact that study participants did not report feeling tired.

"This research provides valuable information for workers, and their employers, who perform these types of visual search tasks during the night shift, because they will do it much more slowly than when they are working during the day," said researcher Jeanne Duffy, Ph.D.

These findings should encourage people to seek help if they can't get eight hours of sleep each night.
