How many days of the week do you wake up feeling exhausted? If you really feel like a slave to your alarm clock, you aren't alone. Only one in 7 Americans wake up feeling fresh every day of the week, according to a poll conducted by YouGov. Experts have traditionally recommended eight hours sleep, though seven hours should also be sufficient.
45 percent of Americans sleeping 7 to 8 hours a night reported feeling tired or fatigued up to three times a week. 27 percent of people said they wake up tired on 4 or more days per week. Those only managing six hours sleep or less each night are, quite unsurprisingly, the most tired. 54 percent of people getting six or less hours sleep wake up tired 4 or more days a week.
This chart shows responses to the question: "how many days a week do you wake up feeling tired and poorly rested?"
