Nearly 1,500 Well+Good Readers Answered Our Sleep Survey—and the Results Are a Serious Wake-up Call
Well+Good recently surveyed nearly 1,500 people about their sleep habits and health (or, *sigh*, lack thereof). Some key takeaways? 92 percent of respondents report feeling fatigued more than one day per week; 65 percent point to general stress for constantly keeping them awake; and 70 percent say their fitness goals suffer as a result of sleeplessness. When asked how they remedy bouts of insomnia, the majority (53 percent) report turning to meditation, with natural sleep-aids like melatonin (52 percent) and CBD (28 percent) named, too.
Perhaps most strikingly of all, though, is that on average, people report clocking in seven hours of sleep instead of their desired eight. Remember that earlier-cited stat from Gallup? Folks are still logging just about an hour less on average than they did in the mid-20th century. So, it seems like high time we all renew our vows to sleeping our way to better mental and physical health. So let's get started, shall we?
