WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Nov 20, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Unemployment continues to grow nationwide, with more layoffs happening nearly every day. But what happens to the employees who aren’t laid off — the ones now doing their own jobs as well as those of former co-workers? Many are battling sleeplessness. It’s a problem costing businesses productivity and profits, and Scent To Sleep ( http://www.scenttosleep.com) is stepping up to help employers do something about it.
Just in time for the holidays, Scent To Sleep is offering companies the opportunity to give their employees the gift of restful sleep at home. Employers can purchase Scent To Sleep’s all-natural aromatherapy sleep mist at discount rates. It’s an inexpensive way for businesses to show they care about their workers while boosting productivity and morale.
“A full 70 percent of employees sleep on the job,” said Sherry Harris, founder of Scent To Sleep. “Right now, they’re tired of commutes, depressed because of a lack of raises and nervous because of layoffs, and that all adds up to restless sleep or no sleep at all at night. So out of necessity, they’re making up for it at work.”
That means employees are catching up on their sleep in the bathroom, in storage rooms or empty conference rooms, and in front of the computer. Often that shut-eye takes the form of microsleep, an episode of sleep lasting anywhere from a fraction of a second to 30 seconds, and it contributes to errors and accidents on the job. And, according to Harris, sleeplessness has been shown to be a reliable predictor of absenteeism.
The solution is, quite simply, more sleep. In today’s fast-paced, unpredictable world, however, that’s often easier said than done. That’s why Harris, a former insomnia sufferer, created Scent To Sleep. Thanks to a unique blend of relaxing and calming essential oils, Scent To Sleep helps the user mentally and physically prepare for sleep by becoming more relaxed. Application is easy; the user simply sprays his or her pillows, bed linens and pajamas shortly before turning in for the night. There are no side effects, and users report waking up rested and refreshed in the morning, sometimes for the first time in weeks or months.
“My insomnia is gone, [and] I’m sleeping through the night,” said Cherie Elkins, a Scent To Sleep user in Columbus, Ohio. “I’m finally feeling like myself again!”
Scent To Sleep is available in Luscious Lavender and Decadent Green Apple Vanilla scents. The company offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, making Scent To Sleep a risk-free way for companies to reduce errors and absenteeism while showing employees they care.
Scent To Sleep can ship its sleep mist directly to a company or to employees’ homes. Businesses interested in taking advantage of the employer discount can e-mail the company at firstname.lastname@example.org for the discounted invoice. Learn more at http://www.scenttosleep.com.
