But if you AREN’T feeling a little more tired than usual today, this might be why . . .
A new study looked at how we’re affected by changes in our sleep pattern. And it might depend on how good of a sleeper you are in general.
56% of people who described themselves as “poor” sleepers said that shifting their bedtime by an hour or more makes them feel worse the next day. But only 28% of “excellent” sleepers said the same thing.
47% of poor sleepers also said it affects them emotionally, compared to just 16% of excellent sleepers. And 46% of poor sleepers said it makes them less productive, compared to just 16% of excellent sleepers.
