Nearly Half Of Americans Would Take A Pay Cut For Better Sleep

Just how sleep-deprived are Americans? Well, nearly half of us admitted we’d take a pay cut just to get a perfect night of shut-eye.

How much of a financial hit are we willing to take? According to a new study taken on behalf of Slumber Cloud, 43 percent of the 2,000 respondents said they’d drop 10 percent of their earnings for one perfect night of sleep. What accounts for such an answer? Perhaps it’s the fact that those across the fruited plains only clocked in five hours and 43 minutes on the pillow, well below the 8 recommended hours. Researchers also learned that the average American goes five days between good nights of sleep. How well do you sleep at night? What tips can you share for getting better sleep?
