So you stayed up later than usual because of the Super Bowl. You had fun and now you are wondering how you will get through the day without falling asleep. The article “Didn’t Sleep Much Last Night? 10 Ways to Function Today,” Murray Newlands provides 10 actions to take to take manage the drowsiness and get through the day.

All of these suggestions are spot on and number 9 is particularly important for social workers or service personnel who drive as a part of their jobs. Short term sleep loss contributes to impaired judgment and perception.

Social workers who drive as a function of their job often work from the car. It is a mobile office. Phone calls are made and accepted. Notes are written and meetings are held. Between noon and one o’clock drive through and eat lunch behind the steering wheel. These activities are difficult after a restful night’s sleep. A sleep deprived driver is more prone to errors and accidents.

SO BE CAREFUL and rest easy.
