A new study has suggested that one in five people nod-off at their work desk due to lack of a good night’s sleep. It was found that lack of proper rest accounts for six million lost working days a year, the Daily Express reported.

The survey by bed firm Silentnight found that only 13 per cent of men and women admitted they slept peacefully, while the rest said that the thought of having to get up early, money worries and stress kept them awake.

Nineteen percent of the respondents said that arguing with a loved one ruined their bedtime. It was revealed that more women than men miss work due to sleepless nights.

About 17 per cent catch up on sleep during the morning commute, while seven per cent doze off at their desk and four per cent during meetings.
