As many as 23 million British people lose an hour’s sleep every night due to worries.
Those worries include dealing with a difficult boss or missing a deadline, according to research by Onepoll, commissioned by the hotelier.
A fifth of those questioned said they had fallen asleep at their desks, while 28 percent had called in sick due to a poor night’s sleep, the research showed.
The recordings feature phrases such as:
“Remember a time when you were calm and relaxed, and take your mind back.”
They can be downloaded by guests free of charge from the company’s Web site.
