Unfortunately according to recent research, many South Africans aren't getting enough sleep. This is considered a major public health concern as it not only costs the economy billions as a result of motor accidents and a loss of productivity but could also result in serious health complications such a heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
On average South Africans get approximately six hour sleep a night based on data collected by a sleep app, called Sleep Cycle. Most said their rising time was 6:24 but that they found it difficult to retire before midnight. The majority only crawled under the covers again at 12:20am.
While six hours of sleep might sound sufficient, it's the sleep you clock before midnight that really counts.
