Researchers have found that Americans are sleepier on average than Europeans. According to the Christian Science Monitor, 19.5 percent of U.S. adults reported moderate to excessive sleepiness during the day, compared to 15 percent of the Europeans surveyed.

Principal investigator Dr Maurice Ohayon told the news source that the discrepancy most likely comes from "insufficient sleep [that] is plaguing the American population."

The results of the study may not come as much of a shock in light of several other studies in the past few years. Last October, the Centers For Disease Control released findings in which 11 percent of respondents said they never got enough sleep.

"Sleepiness is underestimated in its daily life consequences for the general population, for the shift workers and for the people reducing their amount of sleep for any kind of good reasons. It is always a mistake to curtail your sleep," Ohayon told the news source.

One way to reduce sleepiness is to invest in light-blocking roller shades. Experts at Good Housekeeping suggest that roller shades can eliminate light, sound and can be a beneficial sleep aid. Check out our complete line of Good Housekeeping roller shades.
