Summer kicked off with less stress and more pleasure

Thanks to vaccines and warmer weather, we shook off winter’s restrictions and made room for more fun and less stress.

MONTHLY STRESS (US ONLY)

Between May and August, the weather got hotter – and so did our social lives. We got vaccinated, got out, and got busy.

The summer of fun did a number on sleep

The summer of fun did wonders for our social lives – but did a number on sleep. Average sleep performance was – no surprise – highest in January and lowest in June.
