The survey shows 43 percent of Americans would take a 10 percent pay cut for just one night of perfect sleep.

53 percent went as far as saying they wished they could hibernate for six months to catch up on lost sleep. It also found the average person getting a full night sleep once every five days.

5. Get ready to fall in love with Krispy Kreme's pumpkin-spiced doughnuts all over again. The doughnut chain is bringing back its seasonal pumpkin spiced glazed doughnuts just in time for your post-Labor Day blues.

The pumpkin spiced glazed doughnut is filled with cheesecake cream.

To sweeten the deal, Krispy Kreme is offering a Pumpkin Spice Purchase Protection program. It's an opportunity for any customer who has been disappointed by another company's fall flavoring gone wrong to exchange it for one of the doughnut chain's Pumpkin Spice Original Glazed Doughnut for free.

Each of these pumpkin treats and the trade-in offer will only be available for a limited time, giving customers until Sunday, September 8, to get a fix.
