Sleep. Are You Getting Enough? Probably Not! [POLL]

When it comes to ranking nations on the amount of sleep that its citizens receive, the US appears near the top of the list with those that receive the least amount of sleep. In a recent survey from the National Sleep Foundation, they surveyed 1500 people from six different countries and found American’s receive the fewest hours of sleep along with Japanese.

The international survey polled people from the US, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Mexico and Japan and found that the Japanese receive the fewest hours of sleep with 6 hours and 22 minutes and Americans were a close second logging just 6 hours and 31 minutes of sleep a night, typically. Those getting the most sleep in a typical night are in Mexico, sleeping an average 7 hours 3 minutes!

For me, I feel I can function on the typical 6 to 6 1/2 hours of sleep, but I would feel real comfortable and good with about 7 1/2 to 8 hours anything beyond that and I feel tired all day!

One other interesting stat that was revealed from this survey is that 21% of us receive less than 6 hours of sleep, which many attribute to their job and they say they’d catch up on sleep when the weekend arrives.
