You’re not sleeping as much as you want to be (and how to change that)


tiredWelcome to our every-so-often series of questions to discover how you, our readers, live a super interesting, healthy life. We totally invite you to dish on your habits, preferences, and know-how in the Comments, and we may even use our favorite ones in an up-coming article! This week we asked about your sleep habits:

We wanted to know: How many hours of sleep do you get (or try to get!) each night? And how does it affect your day?

After reading through your many responses (which you can see in the Comments, below), it became clear that most Well+Good readers are averaging about seven hours of shut-eye each night.

Which isn’t terrible, really. But the more interesting similarity we found among readers’ sleeping habits was this: almost everyone has an actual number they’re squeezing in, and a different, ideal number that they wish you they were getting (and are maybe achieving on weekends, if they’re lucky).

To help you get in those extra few hours to make up the difference, we compiled some of our best sleep advice stories, below. Take notes, and then start brewing that chamomile tea, now:

1. 5 expert tips on getting more quality shut-eye (and why you really need to make it happen)
