Singaporeans are now clocking the recommended minimum of 7 hours of sleep on average per night, up from an average of 6.4 hours in 2019. This was a finding of a annual global sleep survey “Wake Up Call: Global Sleep Satisfaction Trends” by Philips.
Over 13,000 adults in 13 countries worldwide (including Singapore, Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, South Korea, United Kingdom and the United States) were surveyed to capture attitudes, perceptions, and behaviors around sleep.
While Singaporeans are achieving the recommended minimum hours of sleep per night, sleep satisfaction of Singaporeans remains low, with almost half (49%) of Singaporeans saying they are not satisfied with their sleep.
Poor sleep quality is evident in the form of restlessness, and eight in 10 Singaporeans (79%) waking up at least once during the night. Just over half of Singaporeans say they have a good understanding of what prevents them from getting good sleep (59%), or know what they can do to tackle their sleeplessness (61%).
So if you’re getting a recommending amount of sleep every night, yet you wake up in the mornings feeling like a wreck. What’s draining your energy? Some of these lifestyle culprits may surprise you.
