New Delhi, July 19: Indians have a direct correlation between increasing salary and ease of falling asleep, says an India Sleep and Wellness survey commissioned by Sunday Mattresses and conducted among working professionals above the age of 25. The survey conducted across Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru indicates that there is also a direct correlation between productivity and sleep, said a statement. Over two-thirds of the sound sleepers believe they are hundred percent productive at work; whereas more than half of those who reported getting insufficient sleep believed they were only 75 per cent (or less) productive. Interestingly, people below the age group of 30 sleep better compared to their older counter parts. Adults over the age of 30 are twice as likely to have sleep related problems and adults over 45 years are three times more likely to have sleep related problems. It comes as no surprise that people in Bengaluru go to bed the earliest (between 10 and 11 p.m.) whereas Mumbai has the highest proportion of night owls who sleep after midnight, perhaps owing to long commutes that are a norm there.
