Seventy million American adults have sleep problems. Sleep has become such a valuable commodity they’d pay $300 for one perfect night’s sleep!
Annually, adults get only 106 nights of great sleep, but 99 terrible nights.
Most adults sleep, on average, 6 hours and 17 minutes, well below the recommended amount of 7 to 9 consecutive hours.
Though a third of us snooze on our sides, most of us feel we doze best on our backs.
Nighttime routines can make or break your chances. For the best odds of getting a good snooze, cuddle up with your pet and cool down the room.
Avoid caffeine, alcohol, sugar, tv and technology. Use a weighted blanket or knitted sleep pod, a high quality mattress, great pillows and linens. Listen to white noise and get that lavender diffuser going. Sweet dreams!
