Our lack of sleep is costing the world billions of dollars



Modern humans have plenty of bad habits that keep us from getting a good night’s sleep.

We work long days and check email after-hours, or we toss and turn while fretting about student loans. We fire off late-night tweets or binge-watch Westworld episodes before bed. During the day, some of us drink and smoke too much or exercise too little, which also disrupts the sleep cycle.

These behaviors aren’t just bad for our personal health — they also take a massive collective toll on the global economy, a new report found.
