How You're Getting More Sleep Than You Think!

Posted: Updated:

If you've ever heard your co-workers complain that they're overworked and sleep deprived, they may not be telling the truth!

A new government study claims that Americans actually get a lot more rest than they think.

In fact, they get more than eight hours.

On average, Americans aged 15 or older sleep about eight hours and 44 minutes each day.

What's more- when it comes to hours spent at the office, Americans spend just three hours and 32 minutes at work!

That's almost as much time spent in front of the T. V. in the U.S.

Experts claim this means fewer people are working and more retirees are at home watching television.

The study included people who were both employed and unemployed.
