If you are one to toss and turn in search of sleep, you are not alone. According to a poll, designed and analyzed by researchers at the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy, nearly a third of the New Jersey adults surveyed reported having trouble sleeping, suggesting that a large number of adults suffer from chronic sleep problems. Thirty-one percent are generally dissatisfied with the quality of their sleep, with 16 percent saying they are “very dissatisfied.” And 36 percent of respondents cite one of these factors: not having enough time for sleep; trouble falling or staying asleep; or trying to sleep with a snoring partner or amid too much noise. “Studies have made clear that sleep is vital to our health and well-being,” says Joel Cantor, director of the center. “People who routinely do not get enough sleep are at an increased risk for heart disease, obesity, diabetes, accidents, and other health problems.” And, conversely, poor health contributes to poor sleep: 52 percent of the adults surveyed who said they are in fair or poor health had trouble sleeping, compared to 37 percent among healthy respondents; the gap grows wider for those with mental health challenges. The New Jersey Health and Well-Being Poll, supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, was conducted with a scientific study of 860 New Jersey adults earlier in the year.
