How has the pandemic affected sleep patterns?
PandemicThe tension and tension created by the era had a negative impact on sleeping arrangements as well as in many areas of our lives …
What has changed in our sleep system?
According to the research conducted in 16 countries, the average time to go to bed was 2 minutes late, while the time to wake up was delayed by 8 minutes. While the sleep time was increased by 6 minutes, the sleep efficiency decreased by 0.09 points.
It is seen that women are less affected in this process, while men are more affected. Again, over the age of 60, sleep efficiency decreased even more. As it will be remembered, the measures were more severe over the age of 65.
As a country, the harmony period in South Korea has extended by 17 minutes. In Germany, there was a 0.4 percentage point decrease in sleep efficiency. In addition, it is seen that sleep efficiency is increasing in some countries. Indonesia experienced a 1.1 percentage point increase in sleep efficiency. In other words, we can say that the pandemic has had a positive effect in some countries. In our country, while the duration of sleep is increased by 7 minutes, there is a small change in productivity.
After the pandemic, the longest sleep time was seen in France, while the highest productivity rate was experienced in Argentina. The biggest changes occurred in South Korea and Indonesia, which we mentioned above.
In the research, it is seen that the duration of sleep increases, but this does not mean a healthy sleep. The longer the time a person spends sleeping in bed, the lower the productivity. It is recommended that individuals focus on the analysis of issues that will disrupt the system, such as snoring, by following their sleep cycles.
