A recent survey was conducted by the polling firm Harris Interactive among 1,008 adult Americans to find out how we are sleeping at night. If you aren’t sleeping well at night, you aren’t alone. The survey says that 83% of Americans don’t get a good night’s sleep on a consistent basis. What else did the survey say?
-48% of the volunteers named anxiety and stress as the reason for poor sleep
-38% said that pain interfered with a good night of shuteye
-32% said they were too tired to rest
-23% blamed background noise for their lack of sleep
-23% pointed out that kids and pets were they reason they missed out on snoozing
-18% said their spouses or significant others were to blame
-Women (88%) are more likely than men (78%) to report sleep deprivation or sleep disorders
-Households with a total income of less than $35,000 were more likely to say that they had sleep problems than those households that earned more than $100,000
-Of the adults with a low income, 55% said stress and anxiety was the reason they slept poor and 45% said pain kept them up at night. However, they had their slept interrupted less by children and pets than those who made high incomes.
