A Shocking Number Of Us Are Sleep-Deprived. Here's Why.

We're all tired, and we're ready to do something about it.

Recently The Huffington Post teamed up with Parade magazine to find out how many Americans are sleep deprived and the possible habits that could be robbing them of valuable shut-eye. After 15,000 responses rolled in for the collaborative survey, we did the math and found out that more than 95 percent of responses wish they got more sleep -- and more than a third of them are logging five hours or less each night.

The good news? The survey also revealed that almost every single participant said that they are somewhat or very willing to make lifestyle changes that would benefit their sleep quantity and quality in the long run. Check out the infographic Parade created below, compiling the survey data on naps, pre-bed rituals and screens in the bedroom:
