The Global Pursuit of Better Sleep Health


The Philips 2019 global sleep survey


In recognition of World Sleep Day 2019, Philips once again executed its annual sleep survey across 12 countries to generate insights into how sleep impacts people’s lives and what they are (or are not) doing to improve their sleep around the world. In India we surveyed more than 1000 adults to capture attitudes, perceptions, and behaviors around sleep. Results showed that about 73% Indian adults want to improve their quality of sleep. When it comes to improving sleep, 31% Indians prefer to meditate (vs Global average of 26%) and 20% try natural/organic sleep aids (vs Global average of 18%).

What steps can you take to improve your sleep?

 

The power of information lies in how you use it. Our goal is to use information from our annual sleep survey to empower you to make positive changes to your daily routine that will enable a better night’s sleep and begin to prioritize sleep. Suggestions from our sleep experts include:

Understand and acknowledge the ways that lack of sleep impacts all facets of life – work, relationships, productivity
Build a bedtime routine and maintaining it
Identify the various factors that might be contributing to your sleep troubles and researching your options and/or consulting a physician to address them
Use technology strategically. Research and identify tech that can positively impact your sleep (such as sleep therapy, or sleep aid devices), but disconnect from phones and screens at least 30 minutes before bedtime, preferably sleeping without them by your side

How are you sleeping?

 

The first step to better rest is investigating your risk of an underlying sleep disorder. A significant percentage of the global population is estimated to suffer from disrupted sleep, and sleep apnea is one of the most common of sleep disorders that is often undiagnosed.

 

If you think you might be at risk for sleep apnea, do something good for your health today by taking the sleep apnea risk quiz.

 

We also invite you to share the risk assessment with loved ones who you think might be suffering from sleep apnea, so they can get the help they need to sleep better.
