The Better Sleep Council found that an increasing number of women feel a good night’s sleep, like proper diet and exercise, is central to their overall health and well being. However, while they understand this critical link, the poll shows that women are failing to get the sleep they need. Previous research indicates that women are more sleep-deprived than men, have greater difficulty falling and staying asleep, and experience more daytime sleepiness. This survey found that some groups of women experience more sleep loss than others.
Women are not getting enough sleep, but the amount of sleep they do get is tied to many factors in their lives.
While women know how necessary sleep is to their health, most are just not getting enough.
Marital status plays a role in how well women are sleeping.
Work, and the type of work, plays a role in the amount of rest women get.
Where a woman lives impacts how well she sleeps at night.
It’s clear that minority women have a greater sleep deficit than white women.
