Survey Shows Sleep Habits in Women

A new survey from the National Sleep Foundation found 60% of American women say they are sleep deprived.

The foundation's poll says "stay at home" moms top the list of sleepy women.

Stay at home moms report everything from trouble falling asleep, to sleep trouble tied to co-sleeping with an infant or child.

Experts say those problems can put the whole family in danger.

Dr. Kathryn Lee of the University of California at San Francisco stated, “Some of these women are putting their families at risk by driving while they're drowsy with kids in the car.”

Working women came in a close second in the poll.

Their biggest problem was insomnia.

20% of career-women report working right until bedtime.

So what can women do to get better sleep?

Experts say keep a regular bedtime, reduce your stress, and avoid any caffeine at night.
