What Americans Would Be Willing To Do To Get One More Hour Of Sleep

We all know that sleep is very important for our health and well being, and it turns out a lot of folks will do anything just to get some more time in dreamland.

A new survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Dave’s Killer Bread finds:

  • 81% of people say the amount of sleep they get directly affects their physical health.
  • Another 72% say the same about their mental health.
  • 25% say they usually snooze their alarm because it improves their relationships with friends, family and co-workers.
  • 60% say they have a better relationship with their partner when they get more sleep. 

This could be why so many people try to extend their sleep whenever they can. 72% of people say they snooze their alarm between one and four times each morning.

  • Two-thirds of people say snoozing is part of their daily routine.
  • Wednesday is the day people are most likely to hit snooze (40%), while 28% will do it on Monday.
  • Half will hit snooze more at the beginning of the week, than the end.
  • People are more likely to hit snooze on Saturday than Sunday (20% vs. 9%). 
  • And getting more sleep is so important to people, they’d be willing to do just about anything for one more hour of sleep, including:
    • Never use a spoon or knife to eat again (33%)
    • Give up their favorite streaming service for a year (30%)
    • Wear their most uncomfortable shoes for a week (29%)
    • Eat the same food for dinner every day (28%)
    • Never go to a concert or sporting event again (28%)
    • Sleep on the floor for a month (24%)
