According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American gets eight hours and 43 minutes of sleep every night. Women average about 11 minutes more than men.
On the weekends, we sleep EVEN MORE . . . an average of nine hours and 21 minutes.
And the problem is . . . that’s not great for you. You don’t get any benefit from sleeping more than eight hours, so really you’re just WASTING TIME you could be using elsewhere.
Keep in mind this study includes everyone, not just adults. So there could be some teenagers out there sleeping 17 hours and bringing up the averages.Article Source
