Did you catch Drs Andrew Varga of the NYU Sleep Disorders Center and Monica Mallampalli of the Society for Women’s Health Research on NBC’s Today show? They talked about women’s sleep health.

A quarter of Today show viewers get 5 hours or less of sleep, according to a survey whose results were included in the segment.

“We know that women are more sleep deprived than men,” Mallampalli told Today. “There are biological reasons for that. We believe it’s hormonal, and women tend to have a lot of stress and anxiety that keeps them up at night.”

Varga advised that sleep must be prioritized. “Minimizing the use of electronic devices, especially in the hour or so before your intended bedtime, is really important to help you fall asleep more easily,” he said.
