The end of daylight saving time on Nov. 3 offered a natural opportunity to prioritize sleep and remind Americans about the importance of healthy sleep year-round. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) conducted a survey regarding how adults would use the extra hour.
Survey results found that 41% of adults indicated that they would fall back to sleep. “Sleep” was the top response, followed by spending the extra hour with friends and family (13%) and enjoying a relaxing activity (13%). Another 6% plan to do housework and run errands, and 5% plan to catch up on work or studies.
LCWA and AASM shared these results with media and the importance of taking that time to reflect on your own sleep habits – and make changes as necessary.
