Hosting for the holidays can be stressful, and cause sleep depervation

Being the host for family or friends to stay overnight with you can be a stressful time, a time when you lose sleep trying to prepare for their visit. On average, the host will lose two-and-a-half hours of sleep a night in the days leading up to their guest’s visit.

  1. A recent study shows that 49% of people feel that 4 days is the max you should be an overnight guest at someone else’s home.
  2. Guests don’t sleep well either.  75% of us feel like we have to go to bed and wake up at the same time as the hosts, even if we’re jetlagged.
  3. The best houseguests are Baby Boomers.  The poll found they’re the most likely to be considerate and clean up after themselves.
  4. Young people don’t feel weird about sleeping in the same bed, even under their parent’s roof.  Most Gen Xers and Millennials still kinda do.  But 70% of Gen Zers don’t feel awkward about it.
  5. 7% of people hide their valuables when they have guests, just to make sure nothing gets stolen.
