Here's some new stuff on sleep you may find interesting...!
The National Sleep Foundation just released the results of a massive study on people's sleep habits.
Here are their findings on sleep in the U.S. . . .
The average American sleeps only six hours and 31 minutes . . . but
functions best after at least seven hours and 13 minutes of sleep.
Only 44% of us get a good night's sleep every night :-(
The average person uses TWO pillows. But 14% of people sleep with four or more.
66% of people make their bed every day or ALMOST every day.
61% of people need to AIR OUT their bedroom at least once a week.
31% of us take one or two naps a week, 15% take three to five naps, 5% take six to 10 naps, and 1% of people take MORE than 10 naps a week. 49% of people take no naps. And the average nap lasts 45 minutes.
21% of us sleep with our pets in the bed . . . that's higher than any other country in the world. (That woule be me :-)
55% of us sleep barefoot and 12% sleep naked.
While we are at it... a new survey came up with the most common types of dreams we have... at least the ones we can remember.
Here are the top five . . .
1. Being embarrassed in front of a crowd.
2. Something going wrong at work.
3. SEX DREAMS, with someone you know or a celebrity.
4. Being naked in public.
5. Completely nonsensical dreams.
The survey also found about two-thirds of people say their dreams regularly mess with their sleep.
