Better Sleep Council Research Finds COVID-19 Robs Americans of Sleep and Brings New Wave of Stress

The BSC launched wave two of “The State of America’s Sleep” in January 2020, but then completed another round of research in March 2020, to compare sleep habits during the COVID-19 pandemic. Themes such as spikes in stress, health worries and economic concerns emerged from the study:

1. Stress Skyrockets:

  • In January 2020, four in 10 (41%) Americans reported feeling stressed often or very often. As of March, over half Americans (53%) felt stressed about COVID-19 often or very often.

2. Sleep Suffers:

  • In January 2020, 54% of Americans were getting the minimum 7-8 hours of recommended sleep. As of March, fewer than half (49%) did.
  • Similarly, in January 2020, over four in 10 Americans described their sleep as poor or fair (43%). As of March, over half of the nation qualified their sleep as poor or fair (52%).

3. Economic Woes:

  • About one-third of the nation felt good about the economy in January 2020 (38%) vs. less than 20% did as of March 2020.
  • Lack of confidence in the stock market prevailed in the nation in March (56% of Americans disagree that they have confidence in the stock market vs. 39% in January 2020).

“It’s no surprise that COVID-19 negatively impacted Americans’ health and the extreme two-month sleep shift is alarming,” said Mary Helen Rogers, vice president of marketing and communications for the Better Sleep Council. “However, if we take our findings and help Americans unwind and sleep better during this pandemic, we’ll fulfill our role as the Guardians of America’s Sleep.”
