A new study reveals less than one in 10 people (8%) actually feel fully rested after sleeping. A survey of 2,000 respondents finds that, on average, we only get five hours of sleep every night. More than six in 10 people (61%) cannot remember the last time they felt truly well-rested. Just over one in five (22%) say they can “never” get enough sleep, while 79 percent are satisfied with their sleep. People who say they don’t get enough sleep are likely to be more introverted (29%) and blame stress for keeping them awake at night (68%). They are also more particular about falling asleep only if they’re in the right conditions (64%) and would even give up an hour of morning productivity if it means getting more sleep (32%). Meanwhile, People who say they do get enough rest at night are likely to be extroverts (22%) and less likely to allow stress to prevent them from sleeping (55%). They also care less about their surrounding conditions when going to bed (61%) and would rather not give up that hour of productivity (14%).
