In a study released Monday the organization said nightly sleep averages out to 6 hours and 40 minutes, below the 7 hours and 18 minutes that most people say they need.
The reason for less sleep may be due to increased workload. Workers are spending an average of nearly 4.5 hours each week doing additional work from home on top of a 9.5 hour average workday.
NSF said on average the workday begins at 5:35 a.m. , and many spend just over 2 hours at home before going to work, a commute, which takes an average 47 minutes. Workdays are also getting longer with 25 percent spending between 9 and 10 hours on the job and 33 percent saying they work 10 or more hours each day.
Bed time, on average, is 10:53 p.m. , according to NSF.
