Clearly most of us do all kinds of other things at night besides sleep, which is why so few of us are getting even seven hours in before our alarm clock goes off. Seven hours? Ya, right? Not even with my daily nap!!
So WHAT are we doing instead?
A new survey from PR Newswire found the four main things people prioritize over getting a good night of sleep and here they are:
1. Spending time with our family. 46% say it’s more important than getting good sleep.
2. Spending quality time with our significant other, 43%.
3. Watching TV or movies, 30%.
4. Sending work emails, 30%.
The survey also found that 82% of us feel negative effects when we don’t sleep enough and the top three negative effects are: Looking tired, being less productive and feeling unmotivated.
