It’s not the holiday stress or your partner’s snoring, nor is it your children. Who is stealing that precious sleep we all yearn for?
Researchers recently asked over 120,000 Americans how they spent their time, and those that got 6 hours or less of sleep, were also those that worked *more* on average per week, than those who slept between 6 and 11 hours per day. People who worked multiple jobs were 61% more likely to sleep less than 6 hours per night.
If you have time off from work this week, try to steal some of that sleep back. If you *are* working this week, take a moment and watch this video. Dancing frogs, toupee monkeys and tree-hugging koalas? It won’t help you sleep, but it should make you smile.
And if that doesn’t make you smile, just think–less than 3 months until the Maine Science Festival!
