We could be all-snarky with this stat: 88% of U.S. adults admit to losing sleep while watching TV or a streaming service. Well, duh. How can you really sleep with your eyes open?
But we know what the American Academy of Sleep Medicine is talking about. Sleep is a priority, second only to family. But we're not sleeping.
"It's encouraging that Americans rank sleep as one of their highest priorities, but choosing to binge on entertainment at night instead of sleeping has serious ramifications," said AASM President Dr. Kelly A. Carden. "Sleep is essential to health, well-being and safety, and chronic insufficient sleep can lead to increased risk of health problems, mood disorders, and motor vehicle accidents."
Other things clock-blocking our sleep? Video games, reading, and watching sports.
What, no makin' the lovin'? Or does that not take up a lot of time?
