There are fewer things better than a good night’s sleep. But for many Singaporeans, a restful night is a rare experience and it’s not always because we’re not getting enough sleep.
In fact, Singaporeans are clocking in an average of at least seven hours of sleep per night, compared to 6.4 hours in 2019. This is according to an annual global sleep survey of 1,000 respondents by health technology company Royal Philips. Of course, getting sufficient amounts of sleep regularly is important for your overall physical and mental wellbeing; however, more sleep doesn’t automatically equate to better quality sleep.
According to the same survey, less than half (49 per cent) of respondents are satisfied with the quality of sleep they get. About 60 per cent say they understanding what’s preventing them from getting good sleep, and yet over 80 per cent admit to using mobile phones in bed.
