Health and Wellbeing - How Long Hours and Lack of Sleep are Affecting Your Health

Long hours and lack of sleep are common in financial services and consulting but have you ever wondered what effect they are having on you and your organisation?

Some years ago, I was a junior navigator flying Nimrod Maritime Patrol Aircraft from RAF Kinloss in Scotland. After dinner one evening, at around 7:30pm, a senior officer rushed into the Officers’ Mess anteroom. He was clearly a little flustered and told me that another navigator had fallen ill and that I was going to have to replace him on an important flight the next day. “Get your head down now for a few hours and report for duty at midnight”....

In the first of my blogs on Fatigue at Work, I take a look at the impact on physical health.

Fatigue has been associated with a range of problems from obesity and diabetes to heart disease and cancer. People who habitually sleep for 6 hours or less per night have much higher incidence of disease than those who sleep for 7 to 8 hours a night, the effects include:

  • 50% higher incidence of death from cancer

  • 15% higher incidence of death by stroke

  • 12% more likely to die from all causes before the age of 65
