Experts and specialists are saying…

Better understand and foster sleep during stressful times

With Charles M. Morin, Full Professor, Department of Psychology, Université Laval
Director, Centre d’étude des troubles du sommeil, Canada Research Chair in Sleeping Disorders

In this short video, Prof. Morin answers the following questions about sleep:

  1. What are the different phases of sleep? What variations are considered “normal” vs potentially “problematic”?
  2. What is the link between stress, sleep disturbances, and their effects on performance at work?
  3. What advice would you give to promote better sleep during stressful times?
  4. What are the “Do’s” and “Don’ts” when sleep disturbances become chronic?

To know more about the links between two recovery methods (sleep and short work breaks) and employees’ work engagement, read the Global-Watch Scientific Interpretation Is recovery an effective action lever?

*FOR GLOBAL-WATCH AFFILIATES: For tools to help you implement an action plan to reduce the effects of sleep disorders on your employees, refer to the Global-Watch Complete Sleep Toolkit.

This initiative is supported by the Chief Scientist of Québec with the Québec Research Funds.
