One night will include a stay a luxury, five-star resort. The person selected will be required to submit a written report about the experience every night.
Environmental factors that researchers think might improve sleep quality will be adjusted at the different sites.
"Sleep is essential for good health and quality of life," said researchers. "However, not everyone gets enough good night’s rest regularly. A number of factors determine a person’s quality of sleep and the environment could be one of them."
The year 2020 was the worst year ever for Americans’ sleep.
A study conducted late last year asked 2,000 Americans about their sleeping habits over the tumultuous year — and how they hoped to improve it in the new year. According to the study conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Hatch, 51% pinpointed 2020 as the worst year for sleep.
