We frequently talk about sleep on the MoSho for a few different reasons:

  1. Buzz does a lot of shopping while he's on sleep meds.
  2. We work odd hours, so sleep can be elusive to us.
  3. Lots of people struggle with sleep, and we want to help however we can. Nothing screws up a day like lack of sleep.

A new survey showed that 60% of people have difficulty falling asleep. On average, Americans get 10 really good nights sleep a month. So, what do we do when we can't fall asleep? Here are the top 10.

  1. Watch TV - 43%
  2. Roll around, toss and turn, or switch positions - 38%
  3. Read a book - 36%
  4. Check social media - 36%
  5. Read something online - 34%
  6. Get a drink of water - 34%
  7. Play a game on the phone - 32%
  8. Play video games - 31%
  9. Go for a walk - 28%
  10. Just lie there and stare at the ceiling - 26%

Me? I am number 10. Unless I really really can't sleep. Then I'll do something, and that's usually check my phone.
