A large number of people suffer from sleep problems, which have a negative impact on their ability to perform, socialise, and cope with stress. We tested the hypothesis that sleep and quality of life (QoL) are linked in the Indian population. A questionnaire based on literature was designed and sent through Google Forms to a large working population in India to find out the reasons of sleep disorders and the level of obstruction in quality of life. March 2021 to May 2021 was the time frame for the study. Social demographic data, the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), and the World Health Organization Quality of Life Scale (WHOQLS) were used to collect the data. A total of 271 participants took part in the survey and provided us with their thoughts. There were 120 men and 151 women among the 271 participants. A total of 271 persons, with an average age of 48 and a weight of 90 kilogram, were included in the study. Patients with any chronic condition had considerably higher overall PSQI and depression ratings, although their WHOQOL scores were significantly lower in physical, mental, and social domains. Sixty-one percent of those who took part in the research said that stress had a significant impact on their ability to sleep, and that their inability to get enough sleep in turn led to even more stress. Stress, anxiety, smoking, alcohol, caffeinated beverages, and underlying medical conditions were the most common sources of sleep disturbances, although these were by no means the only factors to be considered.
