It’s Hard to be Healthy

The average American aims for eight hours of sleep every night but half never get there.

A survey of 2,000 adults examined how they try to improve their lifestyles and finds that three in four people say it all starts with focusing on their mental and physical health (78%). As easy as it sounds though, the survey also reveals the struggles many have with maintaining a healthy daily routine.

From turning to energy drinks to snacking away on sugary sweets, it’s certainly not so simple for millions of people. Most respondents agree that making healthy choices the night before and, in the morning, positively impacts their performance throughout the day (84%). This leads three in four to eat or drink something for breakfast every morning (79%).

Respondents also took measures like exercising (46%), implementing a regular sleep schedule (45%), or reading (40%) to help them focus better throughout the day.
