88% of Us Don't Get Enough Sleep Due to Binge-Watching

Does your night routine consist of binge-watching your favorite TV show on Nextflix?

If so, you're not alone. According to a new survey from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, 88% of people don't get enough sleep because they're staying up watching TV. But, is that really surprsing to anyone? Probably not. When looking at age-range, 95% of them are between 18 and 45-years-old. 

Sleep is one of our highest priorities, but when you look at these numbers it doesn't seem like it. 

Here's what keeps up late at night:

1. Streaming TV shows or movies.

2. Reading. Many of us like to pick up a book, but don't know when to put it down. 71% of women and 61% of men have lost sleep because of it.

3. Ah, sports. Gotta love 'em. About 60% of us prefer sports over sleep, 75% of those being men and 45% being women.

4. Video games also keep people up at night, especially those who are under 35-years-old. 59% of men and 42% of women do it.\

 

You might be wondering what you can do to get out of this messy habit- and that's by incorporating good sleep and hygiene before bed, according to the AASM. You can even find more tips to help with your sleeping patterns to help you get to bed on time!
