Verily Life Sciences’ Sleep Mission Study
The study collected total sleep time, sleep stages, number of awakenings along other subjective data over the period of October 1st to December 31st, 2019.
Here are some of the key insights that were produced from this study:
1.Reducing time to fall asleep by as little as 10 minutes may have the same impact as 1 hour of extra sleep on positive sleep perception
2. On average, participants met the expert-recommended 7 hours of sleep only on ~31% of the nights ( so you are not alone)
3. On average, participants slept 5 – 20 minutes longer during the weekends and went to sleep later by 10 – 30 minutes
4. In the week after daylight saving time people on average went to sleep 23 minutes earlier and were 12.8% more likely to report that they slept well compared to the week before the time change.
