30% of U.S. Adults Aren’t Getting Enough Sleep.
Are You One of Them?
According to a recent report from the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention), over 40 million American’s are sleeping less than 6 hours a night. Further, the Better Sleep Council found that 48% of U.S. adults say they don’t get enough sleep and consumer reports found that 1 out of every 3 adults struggle with sleep at least once a week. These serious facts are why we are in business today.

Over the years, tons of successful people from Thomas Edison to Martha Stewart have bragged about hitting the hay for no more than four hours at a time and spending their days and nights plugging away at their work. For a lot of people, sleepless nights are a point of pride, but let’s unpack that for a second: can you really be effective at your job when you can hardly keep your eyes open?
Fortunately for those of us who enjoy a good night’s rest, times are changing! Scientists have been saying for ages that sleep is essential to making sure we function well in our daily lives, and we’re finally starting to come around and agree. Sleep is now considered the third pillar of good health, joining healthy eating and regular exercise sessions as the top three ways to ensure that our minds and bodies reach peak performance. So while you can make it through the day on, say, four hours of sleep, you’re probably not going to be particularly productive. As the folks over at the Huffington Post note, “Healthy Sleep has been empirically proven to be the single most important determinant in predicting longevity, more important than diet, exercise, or heredity and at least a third of us don’t sleep well.”
In other words, too many all-nighters could spell disaster later in life.
