The Rio Olympics have been and gone and weren’t they amazing? Team GB did fantastically well!

But with many of the events on late at night or in the early hours of the morning, wasn’t it difficult to watch them?

That’s why for our August poll we thought we’d ask whether you would change your bed times just so you could stay up and watch some of our brilliant sporting stars such as Mo Farrah and Jessica Ennis-Hill.

And sensibly seven out of 10 you said you wouldn’t. Luckily many of us have the facility to either record programmes or use catch up TV so we didn’t miss out. The trick was to avoid social media or the news so you didn’t have any spoilers!

The Sleep Council Aug-poll-300x204 Who Stayed Up Late To Watch The Olympics?

For the fifth of people who were willing to change their bed times so they could watch the Olympics, we hope you were sensible and didn’t scrimp on your sleep too much. It’s really important to remember that even just one bad night’s sleep can impact on our mood, concentration and memory.

So well done Team GB, Rio was record-breaking… here’s to the next Olympics in 2020!
