Specifically, <em>more than 26% of employed respondents</em> said they’d call it quits at work for a year of perfect sleep. Not unlimited perfect sleep — just a year’s worth. That’s how significant of an impact sleep deprivation can have on someone in the workforce. </p>

Taking a pay cut for sleep?!

More Baby Boomers were willing to take the pay cut, followed by Generation X, and then Millennials. The older the generation, the more they seem to prioritize work-life balance over salaries. </p>

Faking a sickness…just to sleep more.

Think about that. These people are willing to lie to their employer and miss out on an entire day of work just to get a couple more hours of sleep. If that becomes a habit, it could cause some issues for your career. </p>

Not everyone would choose sleep over money.

According to the survey, 57% of respondents were <em>not </em>willing to give up raises and promotions for better sleep. That means they are sleep deprived, but do not want their career to take a hit because of it. </p>
