Philips study shows low prioritisation of a good night’s sleep

29th March 2017

Philips has published the findings of a new study showing how more people need to be aware of the importance of a good night's sleep to their overall health.

Coinciding with the recent World Sleep Day, the Philips study – conducted online in February by Harris Poll – looked at how 6,461 adults across the US, the Netherlands, Germany, France and Japan perceive sleep, as well as how sleep impacts their daily lives.

It was shown that 92 percent of adults globally say sleep is crucial to their overall health and wellbeing, with many making a direct connection between quality of their sleep and the quality of their life and relationship.

Despite this, 84 percent say something in their lives is more important than making sure they get a good night’s sleep, including family time, work responsibilities or spending time with a partner.

The report also showed that many people are still watching TV as the last thing they do before going to bed, despite research indicating that screens should be turned off well before sleep for optimal rest.

Dr Teofilo Lee-Chiong, sleep clinician and chief medical liaison at Philips, said: "We need to start thinking of health and wellness as a table with four legs, each of which representing proper nutrition, exercise, positive mental health and sleep."
