84 Million U.S. Adults Don’t Get Enough Sleep

One third of U.S. adults get less than the recommended 7 hours or more of sleep each day. The U.S. Centers for Disease control analyzed the sleep habits of almost 450,000 participants. Those aged 25-44 were the most likely to report inadequate sleep while those over 65 were most likely to be getting enough. Residents of South Dakota slept the most, and those living in Hawaii got the least.

PositiveTip: A regular schedule for sleep and wake times, and keeping screen devices out of the bedroom help improve sleep time.
