It can happen as often as 300 times per year-Americans waking up on the wrong side of the bed and feeling grumpy. This according to a recent survey by OnePoll.
The survey of 2,000 Americans found respondents wake up from temperature issues approximately three times a week and at least once from both outside noise and unusual dreams or nightmares. The poll found that only about a quarter of respondents actually get a full, uninterrupted night’s sleep.
Three in ten focus in on stress and anxiety as the reason they are not sleeping well. Other contributing factors include tossing and turning, differences in bedtime and with nearly a quarter of those in relationships preferring to sleep alone (that number seems high to us).
Other Tips for sleeping well:
› Increase bright light exposure during the day.
› Reduce Blue Light exposure in the evening.
› Do not consume caffeine late in the day.
› Reduce irregular or long daytime naps.
› Try to sleep and wake at consistent times.
› Meditate and attempt to relax and clear your mind before bedtime.
Remember: A good night’s sleep is as important as regular exercise according to many mental health professionals. Also, a restful night can help in weight loss.
