On our fourth day of gratitude week, we will talk about how gratitude cultivates safety by improving the quantity and quality of sleep we get. Sleep is very important as it restores the body and mind and refresh us for the next day. However, lack of sleep quantity and quality has been linked to lower performance which could cause more safety errors and injuries. Most of us tend to think about things that give us anxiety (such as work deadlines or worries about the kids), the level of stress we experience keeps us awake and cuts back the hours of sleep needed.

In one study, researchers found that people who kept a daily gratitude journal slept around 30 minutes more per night and woke up feeling more rejuvenated. If you are interested in this practice, you can create your own or Google “gratitude journal” to find yours today!
