PH ranks 4th in sleep deprivation in the world – survey

The Philippines ranked the 4th spot along with other countries experiencing sleep deprivation which was based on a recent study conducted by Sleep Cycle.

According to Sleep Cycle’s recent survey, an application that monitors people’s hours of sleep, Filipinos were spending 6 hours and 30 minutes to 6 hours and 45 minutes of sleep per day.

These numbers were low if they were being compared to the recommended span of sleep by the American National Sleep Foundation for adults which range between 7 and 9 hours a day.

“The lack of sleep or sleep deprivation may sabotage one’s mental and physical health at risk causing short-term and long-term memory problems, mood swings, anxiety and depression, inability to focus, weight gain, and others,” the Sleep Cycle said.

Dr. Catherine Darley, a natural sleep expert, advised us to invest in a more comfortable bed and linens while putting blackout shades on the windows for us to fall asleep easily.

Improving one’s sleeping condition and attaining the right amount of sleep positively enhances the lives of people, she added.
