The National Sleep Foundation just released the results of a massive study on people's sleep habits. And if there's ONE thing that's reassuring, it's that you're not the only person who occasionally stinks up your bedroom. Here are their findings on sleep in the U.S. . . .
The average American sleeps six hours and 31 minutes . . . but functions best after at least seven hours and 13 minutes of sleep.
Only 44% of us get a good night's sleep every night.
The average person uses TWO pillows. But 14% of people sleep with four or more.
66% of people make their bed every day or ALMOST every day.
61% of people need to AIR OUT their bedroom at least once a week.
31% of us take one or two naps a week, 15% take three to five naps, 5% take six to 10 naps, and 1% of people take MORE than 10 naps a week. 49% of people take no naps. And the average nap lasts 45 minutes.
21% of us sleep with our pets in the bed . . . that's higher than any other country in the world.
55% of us sleep barefoot and 12% sleep naked.
