6 in 10 Americans claim getting more sleep helps them have a better relationship with their partner

Hitting the snooze button doesn’t make you lazy – instead, it may help your social life, new research suggests.

In a poll of 2,000 adults, about one-quarter (24%) typically snooze their alarms because it helps their relationships with family, friends and co-workers.

6 in 10 claim getting more sleep helps them have a better relationship with their partner.

Furthermore, 71% said the amount of sleep they get directly impacts their social health.

The average American sets four different alarms to wake up on a normal day. About one in 10 of those surveyed don’t set an alarm.

Thirty-two percent of non-alarm clockers eat breakfast every day of the week, compared to only 7% of those who set about nine to 10 alarms.

The poll, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Dave’s Killer Bread, also uncovered that a midweek slump is worse than a case of the Mondays.

People are most likely to hit “snooze” on Wednesday (40%), while only 28% are likely to do so on Monday.

Half also tend to use the snooze button more at the beginning of the week than at the end.
