Bad, yet unsurprising, news for all of us who get up for work before 6am; we aren't getting the recommended 8 hours of sleep a night.

A survey found that people who get up before or at 6am get an average of 6 hours of sleep, but people who get up between 9 and 10am get an average of 7.3 hours. The main reason for less sleep? Working more hours and a longer commute time. Those people that get less than 6 hours of sleep average 1.5 hours more of work on weekdays and 1.8 hours more on weekends/holidays. Additionally, 61% of people who work multiple jobs are getting less than 6 hours of sleep during the week.

The best way to increase sleep is to delay work times and shorten commute times.
