Are you getting enough sleep? Answer ten simple questions to find out. The results might just surprise you!

Only last week, we shared with you, findings of a survey which revealed that couples who sleep closer to each other tend to be happier than those who sleep apart.

(Read more about that here)

This week we are asking you, our dear readers, to participate in a quick survey of your sleeping habits.

Do you think you sleep well?

Do you watch television just before going to bed?

Do you check your mobile phone almost immediately after waking up?

Take the ten questions that follow to find out just how well (or poorly) you sleep.

Do also watch out for the survey results next week to find out just how where you stand among the rest of our readers! :-)

Meanwhile, let's find out a little about your sleeping pattern, shall we?
