A new survey of more than 440,000 Americans finds that about a third of adults don't get enough sleep.

About 65 percent of Americans get a "healthy" amount of sleep, or at least 7 hours a night, while 35 percent get less than 7 hours of sleep per night, according to the survey. [Here's How Many Americans Actually Sleep 7 Hours]
