The study is based on the insights sourced from Indians that have taken their sleep test on the sleep-o-meter hosted on the sleep@10 website (www.sleepat10.com). Over 1.5 lacs Indians have taken the sleep test. Mumbai is found to be the most sleep deprived city in India. The survey also found that nine out of every ten respondents felt dull after they wake up. Around 64% of the respondents admitted that "screen time", including television and phone, could be delaying their sleep time while 55% of the respondents said they slept after midnight while the ideal time would be around 10 pm. The study further revealed that the problem of not sleeping on time wasn’t only restricted to adults but kids as well wherein only 90% of respondents below 18 years sleep after 10pm leading to sleep deprivation on a rampant rise among the next generation
Acknowledging the insights garnered from the study Dr. Preeti Devanani, Sleep Therapist, Sleep@10 – A Godrej Interio initiative said “Sleep is the single most compromised aspect of life. The addiction to technology and multiple devices all through the day and accessing them immediately before sleeping is also on the rise. The sleep-o-meter findings will help people to follow a regime that will lead to healthy sleeping habits and avoid stress and other health diseases that result from insomnia. In this modern lifestyle, sleep deprivation is turning out to be a rising concern”.
Commenting on the Sleep@10 sleep-o-meter findings, Anil Mathur, COO, Interio Division, said “We at Godrej Interio are committed towards health of the nation and Sleep at 10 is an initiative which promotes right sleeping habits which is beneficial for overall health and productivity. The sleep-o-meter study was conducted to create awareness about how sleep is becoming more critical from a health point of view – not just sleep, but the quality, the duration and the time when we go to sleep.”
