Let’s embark on a journey through the diverse sleep patterns, habits, and trends across the nation.

Sleep Deprivation

Did you know that nearly half of India wakes up feeling tired in the mornings? That’s a startling revelation from the 7th edition of the Sleep Scorecard. It seems like Indians are struggling to get the rest they need. In 2024, a staggering 58% of Indians were hitting the hay after 11 pm.

Digital Dominance

Ah, the allure of our smartphones! A whopping 88% of Indians are guilty of using their phones just before bed. This digital exposure before sleep may be one of the culprits behind our restless nights.

Urban Nocturnes

Picture this: bustling cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Gurugram with their vibrant nightlife scenes. The report paints a different picture—46% to 61% of residents in these cities stay up past their ideal bedtime, leading to widespread morning tiredness. 

Women vs. Men

Sleep isn’t gender-neutral in India. Women seem to be shouldering a heavier burden when it comes to sleep woes. They experienced a 50% higher incidence of waking up more than 3 times at night than men.

Generational Divide

From Gen Z to Gen X, each age group has its own sleep story. Millennials and Gen Z struggle with ditching their gadgets before bedtime, and they’re paying the price with daytime sleepiness. Meanwhile, Gen Xers are seeking solace in the embrace of a good mattress to combat their late-night scrolling habits.

As we wrap up India’s sleep stats, it’s evident that sleep isn’t just about closing our eyes and drifting off into dreamland—it’s a reflection of our lifestyles, stresses, and societal dynamics. So, the next time you reach for your phone before bedtime, pause and ponder: Is it worth sacrificing your sleep quality? 

After all, a well-rested India is a healthier, happier India.
