During this pandemic and the level one lockdown in Oregon and Washington has lots of people struggling and dealing with depression and anxiety. A new survey found the #1 thing keeping us up at night is “next day anxiety” . . . or lying in bed thinking about all the stuff you have to do tomorrow.
Do YOU? like myself lie in bed replaying TODAY’S events in your head . . . being too hot or too cold . . . too much caffeine . . . and dealing with back pain. Here are four more sleep stats from the survey . . .
1. It takes an average of 27 minutes to fall asleep each night. And for 1 in 9 people, it takes over an hour. Around a third of us can fall asleep in 15 minutes or less.
2. The average person wakes up in the middle of the night five times a week. And your DOG is more likely to wake you up than your cat.
3. Even our dreams were more stressful last year. Half of Americans say they had more stress-fueled dreams than ever before. The top stressful things we dream about include falling, dying, being chased, and being back in school.
4. 54% of us have a hard time sleeping without our favorite pillow. Half said the same about a favorite blanket. And over a quarter of us can’t sleep if our partner isn’t lying next to us.
