Get Some Extra Zzzz’s


Welcome to day 6 of the Decompress – Where’s Your Happy Place? powered by Compass One

If you’re like the average nurse, you’re probably not getting enough sleep. Our HealthyNurse® Survey found that nurses sleep an average of 7 hours per night, and the National Sleep Foundation recommends 7 to 9 hours. If you’re not getting the sleep you need, you might be at risk for developing certain health problems. And you may make mistakes that you wouldn’t make if you were well-rested.

A healthy amount of sleep is so important for our bodies and minds. Quality sleep can:
  • Improve productivity
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Help ward off illness
  • Improve your quality of life

Today, we’re giving you permission to schedule your “me time” as “catching up on sleep time.” Build some extra time for Zzz’s into your schedule — whether it’s a catnap during the day, or going to bed early, or sleeping in a little longer. Do what works best for you, but make it a priority.
