How many hours do we sleep for in a year?


It’s funny, but if you ask a bunch of people what the most used piece of furniture is, hardly any of them will give you the right answer. Most will say sofa, chair, table or some other item that people use while they are awake. The right answer is, of course, the bed. No other item of furniture comes close.

We spend around a third of every day in bed (if we are lucky!), which is eight hours. That means that every week we are in bed for 56 hours. In a month, that adds up to two hundred and twenty four hours. And in a year, we spend 2848 hours out of a total of 8544 hours in a year in bed.

No other item of furniture is able to compete with the bed for amount of use per year. The reason most people do not instantly identify the bed as the most used piece of furniture is that unlike all the other pieces of furniture, they spend the majority of their time using this item when they are zonked out, fast asleep.

It makes you realise how important it is to have a comfortable and supportive bed.
