Alarming Trends Revealed on World Sleep Day: Great Indian Sleep Scorecard 2024

On the occasion of World Sleep Day,, a leading sleep and home solutions provider, unveiled the findings of its 7th edition of the Great Indian Sleep Scorecard (GISS) 2024. The report highlighted concerning signs of declining sleep quality across India, indicating a growing sleep crisis in the country.

According to the report, in 2024, a staggering 58% of Indians went to bed after 11 pm, while nearly half of the population woke up feeling tired in the mornings. The data also revealed that 88% of individuals experience multiple awakenings during the night, with one in four Indians believing they suffer from insomnia due to their inability to sleep well.

The prevalence of digital exposure and rising stress levels were identified as key factors exacerbating India's sleep woes. Social media and over-the-top (OTT) platforms were cited as the top reasons for 54% of Indians staying up beyond their ideal bedtime, with a striking 88% admitting to using their phones just before going to bed. Additionally, over 30% of respondents reported staying up late worrying about their future.

The GISS report also shed light on the nocturnal habits of urban India, revealing diverse sleep patterns across different cities. In Gurugram, half of the population stays up beyond the ideal bedtime, with 61% waking up feeling tired. In Mumbai, Delhi, and Kolkata, around 46% of residents engage in late-night activities, while social media usage keeps 43% of Hyderabad, Chennai, and Bengaluru residents awake.

Work pressures were identified as a significant contributor to late nights, with 33% of respondents in Chennai, Gurugram, and Hyderabad reporting staying up late due to work, the highest among all cities. Delhi led in reporting workday sleepiness at 60%, with other cities averaging 55%. Chennai stood out with a 72% higher trend of sleeping outside conventional beds.

Despite the challenges, there is a growing awareness about the importance of sleep. While 31% of Indians believe that investing in a better mattress can improve sleep quality, another 38% are convinced that avoiding digital devices before bedtime is key to a good night's sleep.

The findings of the Great Indian Sleep Scorecard 2024 underscore the urgent need for interventions to improve sleep hygiene and raise awareness about the importance of quality sleep for overall health and well-being.
