Summer is supposed to be a carefree time of year, with long, sunny days and breezy, sit-on-the-front-porch evenings.
Maybe not. In an online article in Prevention magazine, Shannon Rosenberg reports on a survey in which one-third of Americans described themselves as under more stress during summer than at any other time of year.
“People associate summer with recuperating and having more time on their hands,” Uli Gal-Oz, chief executive of SleepRate, a company based in California and Israel whose smartphone app offers help to the sleepless, says in the article. But, he says, “because the days are longer, people try to do more and sleep less.”
The online SleepRate survey found that nearly half of the respondents said summer social events kept them so busy that they lost sleep time. Many — 69 percent — said they often scheduled three social occasions a week in the summer.
