Will you get in bed tonight ready to sleep, or do you have a whole pre-sleep routine where you just sort of hang out for a while?
A new poll found the average American spends 44 minutes in bed BEFORE they try to fall asleep. The most common things we do are surf the internet . . . watch TV . . . check social media . . . check our email . . . and text people.
Here’s a little more on the average American’s bedtime routine . . .
1. The top apps we use in bed are YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, and TikTok. 11% also spend a significant amount of time shopping on Amazon.
2. 71% of us set an alarm before bed, or have one pre-set on our phone. One in five say there’s a 100% chance they’ll hit snooze at least once tomorrow.
3. A third of us always wash our face before bed. 33% said every night . . . another 38% said at least once a week . . . and 29% said never.
4. Only 63% of us always brush our teeth. Another 24% do at least half the time. But 3% said they brush an average of one night a week . . . and 10% of us NEVER brush before bed.
