Pfizer recently hired Braun Research Inc. to look into the leading causes of sleeplessness. They called up 1,000 Americans to find out what was keeping them up at night, what they would give up for sleep, and how lack of sleep is impacting their lives.
The company found that “Aches and Pains” are the number one cause of difficulty in falling and staying asleep. That information will probably come in handy for the next Advil PM advertising campaign…
But the infographic has a few other interesting findings as well. Our favourites:
- 69% can’t sleep because of aches and pains
- 60% can’t sleep because of family and relationship stresses
- 32% of respondents would give up a bonus at work for more sleep
- 28% have fallen asleep at at work when they don’t get enough sleep and 50% say it has caused them to perform poorly
