Starting work before 10am isn’t just soul crushing, this scientist says it’s equivalent to torture

Starting work before 10am isn’t just soul crushing, this scientist says it’s equivalent to torture | Headhunting, Recruitment, Job Search, Management & Leadership | Scoop.it

According to Dr. Paul Kelley of Oxford University, the most prevalent form of modern torture looks like this
Dr. Kelley and a research team at the Sleep and Circadian Institute have studied and developed a conclusion, that it violates the natural circadian rhythm of the human body to wake up every day for work at 9 AM. 

As they point out, the rhythms that regulate human energy levels, brainwave activity and hormone production are directly connected to the light cycles of the planet, not the industrial, factory oriented, 9-5 mentality of the 1800s.  Though the 8 hour work day was implemented by factory owners in the late 1800s and seemed to increase productivity for the corporation, it was not a plan, tried and true, for those that wake up and live a modern lifestyle that often includes thinking.
As Kelley told the British Science Festival in Bradford, “We’ve got a sleep deprived society.”  He put his theory to the test when moving a British school's start time from 8:30 to 10am and saw grades improve by an average of 19%.
Companies that force employees to start earlier than 10am are putting stress on the emotional and physical systems of the workers, causing increased number of sick days and a lower quality of work.  It is also notoriously why Americans spend $40 billion on coffee annually, averaging over 3 9oz cups a day.
As Kelly puts it, "this is an international issue. Everybody is suffering and they don’t have to.”
