Sleeping patterns in adults are down more than an hour from a few decades ago. In 1942, 84% of adults received 7 or more hours of sleep per night. That’s compared to only 59% of adults who get more than 7 hours of sleep a night in 2020. Sleep terror is a condition that often happens to people who don’t get enough sleep or poor quality sleep. It frequently affects children but adults are also known to experience sleep terrors at some point or another.
As many as twenty-two million Americans suffer from sleep apnea. Because this condition is something that occurs at night while the afflicted are sleeping, many people don’t even know that they have it. However, just because someone doesn’t know that they have a condition doesn’t mean that it is harmless.
