If you’re like millions of us, you’re probably not. Did you know…

• The average person in the United States today sleeps 20% less than they did 100 years ago.

• More than 30% of the US population suffers from insomnia.

• People who suffer from sleep deprivation are 27% more likely to become overweight or obese.
