Description

The Effects of Sleep on Performance The aim of our study was to record performance based on the amount of sleep we get every day. Studies conducted by the National Institute of Health show that not getting enough sleep can affect productivity and performance in daily activities. People with less sleep tend to need more caffeine according to the National Institute of Health. The body needs 7 or more hours of sleep to perform, not getting those hours of sleep can impact physical and mental health. To conduct and document this experiment, the subjects utilized an activity log and 1– 10 rating scale, with 1 equating to significantly low-performance productivity and 10 equating to significantly high performance and productivity. Each subject documented how much time they spent doing each activity. Then, the subjects gave a rating of their overall feeling. Test the subjects rated their experience based on performance in work, school, and attending the gym. Our findings show that the test subject that received the least amount of sleep did not perform as well compared to the test subjects that received more sleep. Individuals who slept longer had a better mean productivity rating, according to the findings. The subjects with more sleep also felt better mentally and physically compared to the subjects that received less sleep. Overall, our findings suggest that getting less sleep may have significant physical and psychological effects on an individual, thereby impacting daily function and performance when carrying out varying tasks. Our data shows there is a positive correlation between performances.
