We spend our mornings complaining we don’t get enough sleep but most nights convincing ourselves it’s a good idea to watch just one more episode. It’s a vicious cycle, but one we assumed most people were stuck in. Yet according to this year’s American Time Use Survey, an annual report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, most 20-somethings get nine hours of sleep per night. (Technically, the average is 9.28 hours for 20-24 year olds and 8.87 hours for 25-34 year olds.)
We’re dumbfounded. Are we the only ones out there who go through life mildly sleep-deprived? Who are these well-rested overachievers? Show yourselves and tell us your secrets!
