Individuals in the United States sleep one to two hours less per night,according to experts. And what’s holding us awake? Is there a way to get to sleep in a restless nation? Try an adjustable bed for a goodnight’s sleep. Sticky white,sticky patches cover my forehead,each packed with multicolored wires. I have a nasal tube with a strange little thing hanging under my nose; some additional sensors are hidden in my scalp,stuck to my skull. In different positions on my face,more of these wire patches are trapped,and a few of them snake under my clothes and down each leg. I drag a tangle of cables while I’m walking.
All these sensors were patiently put on me by an employee at a sleep clinic located outside Baltimore,a procedure that took about 30 minutes. It reminds me a little bit of what an astronaut would feel while wearing a suit in space. They send me to bed,where they connect even more sensors,like a pulse oximeter that they connect to the tip of a finger,until the process of fully entangling myself into this network of wires is complete. That’s how they attach all the wires to a set of wall sockets. I could ask for help or have a helper detach me first if I want to get up during the night.

These measures,known as polysomnograms,are designed to track a full set of physical processes,from brain waves and movements of the eyes and limbs to heart function and blood oxygen levels. All these sensors together can paint an exquisitely detailed image of a physical state that is remarkably enigmatic and increasingly elusive: that of the sleeping person.

For all this to happen,I have to fall asleep first
In America Awakened Having a good night’s sleep has become a virtual obsession for millions of people in the USA. We sleep in the span of a few centuries,one hour less per night on average than our ancestors did. In 1942,only 11 % of people slept six hours or less each night in the United States. 40 percent did so in 2013. Older adults are more prone to sleep disorders,especially obstructive apnea,an intermittent breathing problem that causes significant health issues.
So many individuals seem to be getting so little sleep that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC) deemed the appalling sleep state of the nation a public health issue in 2011: about 80 million adults in America do not get enough sleep,according to the latest CDC report. 70 million adults suffer from sleep problems,the National Institutes of Health ( NIH) reports. Sleep disruptions came in second in a 2015 survey of top health concerns. “They have not been in the top five before,” says Timothy Morgenthaler,a Mayo Clinic pulmonologist and former president of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Is there a crisis of sleep? Well,what constitutes a “crisis”? In recent years,these issues have undoubtedly risen drastically.
Several causes,including increasing obesity and the enormous number of adults taking drugs such as antidepressants,have been established by experts. But for many,having less sleep is something they want to do: watch TV,waste time on Facebook,or remain occupied until late at night in front of computer screens. The average adult spends more than 11 hours a day on these things,according to Nielsen figures. All those smartphones,tablets and TVs collectively conspire to deprive us of sleep through the light of high intensity that they transmit and disturb our circadian rhythm,which evolved to suit the natural daylight cycles.
