NEW DELHI: If a person feels drowsy during the day and is not able to concentrate on his work in office, there is a possibility that he might be suffering from sleeping disorder. This condition affects as many as 93 per cent of Indians, a survey released on October 10, 2018, has revealed.

The survey, conducted by Godrej Interio, found that going to sleep post 10 pm is clinically declared as an inappropriate time to go to sleep, as it triggers a change in the sleeping pattern that leads to sleep deprivation.

As many as 51 per cent of Indians sleep post mid-night and around 35 per cent sleep less than six hours daily, the survey said.

The survey was conducted across 25 cities in the country, among 8,000 people from 35 to 65 years of age.

Dr. Vivek Nangia, Head, Sleep Medicine, Fortis Hospital, told DTMT, “Lack of sleep not only impacts the overall quality of life and productivity of a person but also leads to serious health issues such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and irregular heart beat.”

Dr Nangia said, “A child needs 10 to 12 hours of continuous sleep, rather than multiple naps, by the age of two. And its up to us as parents to ensure that we facilitate a good sleep routine for ourselves as well as our children.”

International footballer Aditi Chauhan, who is a strong advocate of a disciplined sleep routine, launched the Posture Support Mattress by Godrej Interio and said that a good sleep routine has played an important role in her success as an athlete.

Ms Chauhan, said, “Football is an extremely agility-demanding sport wherein alertness and fitness remain integral to success. Hence, adequate and quality sleep is necessary since it reenergizes the body and rejuvenates the mind, thereby refreshing one to perform to his or her optimum level.”

Anil Mathur, Chief Operating Officer, Godrej Interio, said, “We have always believed that quality and adequate sleep is closely related to the mattress one uses. If the mattress is better, it offers a more comfortable sleep – both qualitatively and quantitatively.
