Of all Americans, Millennials are the most likely to feel sleep-deprived as a result of Daylight Savings Time. In a Google survey posed by US-Mattress asking how people felt after the time change, 74% of individuals ages 24 to 34 reported feeling a little or a lot more tired than usual.

Of all Americans, Millennials are the most likely to feel sleep-deprived as a result of Daylight Savings Time. In a Google survey posed by US-Mattress asking how people felt after the time change, 74% of individuals ages 24 to 34 reported feeling a little or a lot more tired than usual.

This contrasts highly with many of the Baby Boomers, who generally felt no different after Daylight Savings Time. Almost 70% of people over the age of 65 said that they felt the same as usual, maintaining the same level of energy as before.

Since Millennials are one of the most youthful groups, it may seem surprising that they are so much more affected by the time change than other age groups. A large reason for this may be the fact that many more people in their twenties and thirties are full-time members of the workforce, as well as parents. Most of those over the age of 65 are typically retired or working only part-time, and in most cases, they are no longer raising children. This enables them to maintain a more regular and restful schedule.

What’s more, income may also influence the energy level of those who responded to the survey. There was a definite trend showing that people who earn more than $75,000 were more tired than those who earn less. This supports the idea that being in the workforce affects a person’s physical reaction to losing an hour of sleep.

In total, just over half of all Americans reported feeling more tired after the time change. Approximately 53% of the entire population said that they felt either a little or a lot more tired after losing an hour of sleep.

The remaining population consists of those who do not feel any different and those who had more energy than usual. About 41% of Americans testified to feeling the same as always, while almost 6% said that they had more energy.
