Poll: Most American Adults Sleep Poorly

Getting a good night's sleep is hard for many adults and that often means poorer health, lower productivity on the job, more danger on the roads and a less vibrant sex life.

Most people ignore the problem and few think they actually have one. Only half of those polled were able to say they slept well on most nights.

One-fourth of adults say sleep problems have some impact on their daily lives.

"People who sleep well, in general, are happier and healthier," he said. "But when sleep is poor or inadequate, people feel tired or fatigued, their social and intimate relationships suffer, work productivity is negatively affected, and they make our roads more dangerous by driving while sleepy and less alert."
