Most Of Us, In Need Of A Good Night’s Sleep, Would Take A Pay Cut For It

A good night’s sleep isn’t always easy to come by and it’s definitely something a lot of us wish would be easier. Well, now a new poll reveals just how much people desire a truly perfect night of sleep.

The poll finds that the average American will go five days between good nights of sleep, with most people waking up feeling sluggish three days a week, although it’s even more than that for one-third of Americans. 

Sleep is so elusive, the average person spends 20 hours a week dreaming of being in their bed, and five waking hours feeling tired every day. In addition, 53% would love to be able to hibernate for six months to catch up on sleep.

  • And lack of sleep could wind up being costly, with the average American spending $52 a month trying to stay awake with things like coffee and energy drinks. They’ll also spend $48 a month on sleep aids in order to fall asleep.
  • And when it comes to money, folks are more than willing to part with it if it means getting sleep, with 43% of Americans willing to take a 10% pay cut for one perfect night’s sleep.
