Did you know, an estimated 80% of Americans adhere to a daily work schedule that starts at 6 am and finishes at 6 pm (1)?
This is incredible when you consider over one-third of the population claim to be night owls!
Unsurprisingly, this routine doesn’t complement those who can’t sleep until late at night.
The result is a concept called "social jetlag."
This is where night owls feel fatigued, even when they get enough sleep. They’re continually fighting their natural body clocks, and it's exhausting.
If you consider yourself a night owl, you know all of this too well.
