How much sleep have YOU been getting at night?

How’ve you been sleeping lately? If you’re like many Americans, you’re likely encountering some sleep problems on a consistent basis.

In a recent survey by the National Sleep Foundation (who knew there was such a thing), 41% of those surveyed said they endure sleep problems every night or almost every night.

The study also tried to analyze methods used by those with sleep issues to help themselves sleep. Fifteen percent said they used “relaxation techniques,” eight percent use a sleep prescription while seven percent use an over-the-counter sleep aid. Interestingly, seven percent noted that they use a stiff drink to help out. There was no word from respondents on whether counting sheep was still a method that works.
