The Better Sleep Council recently noted in a report that many Americans struggle with a lack of sleep, and would be willing to give something up to get more time to rest in bed.
Close to half of Americans have a habit of falling asleep in a place that isn't their bed at least once each week, the report said. More than one-tenth also noted that they fall asleep in a place that isn't their bed every day.
"The health problems associated with not getting enough sleep are well documented," said Karin Mahoney, director of communications for the BSC. "People who don't get enough sleep can suffer from poor performance at work or school to depression, diabetes, heart disease and other ailments."
Those consumers who are having trouble getting a proper amount of sleep may benefit from looking for medical help, as not sleeping enough can be severely damaging to a person's health. If they don't have a proper medical policy, or are not happy with their current plan, it may help to compare health insurance quotes online.
