COSTA MESA, Calif. (UPI) — Most U.S. adults sleep on their sides, forget their dreams in the morning and often sleep with someone who snores, a survey of 3,700 indicates.
A survey for home furnishings retailer Anna’s Linens to coincide with National Sleep Day found 74 percent of U.S. adults said they wear pajamas to bed, 8 percent said they slept naked, 74 percent said they failed to recall their dreams in the morning, 74 said they sleep on their sides and 47 percent said they shared a bed with someone who snored.
Nearly two-thirds said they got a “restful night’s sleep” only three nights or less per week, only 10 percent said they got a restful night sleep every night, while one-quarter said they slept restfully five to six nights per week, the survey said.
The night providing the least restful sleep was Sunday, followed by Monday. Friday night provided the most restful sleep, followed closely by Saturday, the survey said.
Out of those who shared a bed, 63 percent said they probably wouldn’t get a better night’s sleep if they slept alone.
No further survey details were provided.
