More than half of Canadians confess a poor night's sleep results in a less productive day, according to a recent survey.

According to the poll, one-third of employees battle fatigue at work between 3 and 10 hours each week. That translates into as many as 48 million hours of lost productivity.

The Better Sleep Council Canada, which conducted the poll, stresses the importance of focusing not just on the quantity, but the quality of sleep you get each night.
