Considering that the average person spends roughly 30 percent of their life going to work , doesn’t it make sense to want to spend it on as little pain as possible? Science has your back.

Going to work before 10 am is torture according to science

Oxford University scientist Dr. Paul Kelley has made a discovery that probably affects most of us. He examined the forms of modern torture and found that waking up and going to work before 10 a.m. is the most common of all.

He says that everyone has their biological clock, also known as a circadian rhythm . This body clock is pre-programmed and cannot be changed, so if we force ourselves to wake up every day before our organs and brain are ready, then we are fighting against the natural clock , and that has many adverse effects on our health. .

Dr. Paul Kelley believes that lack of sleep is an international problem and, as mentioned above, it can be dangerous to our health.

For example, starting work before 10 a.m. sharp can cause poor sleep and emotional and physical stress, which can also lead to even more dangerous health risks.

He tested his theory at a school in Britain, where he changed the lesson start time from 8.30 am to 10.00 am. They found that after a certain time, the level of attendance and overall productivity improved significantly.

The improvement was also seen in student grades.

“It greatly damages the body’s systems because it affects the physical, emotional and performance systems of the body…” – Dr. Paul Kelley

Similarly, companies that force employees to start work earlier are likely to hurt their production, while accumulating health problems.

“This is a huge societal problem,” Dr. Kelley said. “Staff must start at 10 am

“Staff are generally sleep deprived. We have a sleep deprived society. It greatly damages the body’s systems because it affects the physical, emotional, and performance systems of the body.

“Your liver and your heart have different patterns and it’s asking them to shift for two or three hours.” This is an international problem. Everyone is suffering and they don’t have to. ”

We have a sleep deprived society

He said that the body was in tune with sunlight and that it was not possible to change its 24-hour cycle to learn how to get up at a certain time.

“This generally applies to prisons and hospitals,” he added. “They wake people up and give them food they don’t want. You are more docile because you are totally out of the game. Sleep deprivation is torture. ”

Lack of sleep has been shown to have significant health effects. One study found that a week with less than six hours of sleep per night led to 711 changes in gene function.

Lack of sleep has been found to affect performance, attention, and long-term memory and to encourage drug and alcohol use. It also leads to anxiety, frustration, anger, impulsive behavior, weight gain, high blood pressure, low immunity, stress, and mental health conditions.

Tens of thousands of children start school at 10 a.m. in an experiment conducted by Oxford to show that later classes can improve test scores.

High school students in Britain in more than 100 schools will participate in the four-year project based on the evidence that teenagers are out of sync with the traditional school schedule. Findings are expected in 2018.

Why are we going to work so early?

So why do we still torture ourselves?

Well, 8-hour business days were created in the early 20th century to maximize factory productivity. They did not consider the clock of the human body, which naturally wants to coordinate with the sunlight, not with the bosses’ schedule.

Unfortunately, we are still stuck in the old system and don’t think about what our bodies naturally want.

Getting enough sleep means there are no more intoxicated, overworked, or energy drinkers. Just think about this, an average person in Western countries drinks 3 cups of coffee a day, which means 40 billion dollars a year spent on coffee in the United States alone.

If everyone listened to their bodies and woke up naturally, their work would be much more productive and focused, and they would be happier overall.
