I didn’t write the following article.
We all have different habits when it comes to sleeping. This is true not only in terms of individuals but also between different cultures and countries around the world. Based on statistical information, sleeping habits can vary quite widely from one country to another.
According to the results of tests carried out by Sleep Cycle, people across the world tend to get the best sleep on Wednesday nights. The results also showed that worldwide people tended to wake up in the best mood on Saturday mornings yet tended to spend the least amount of time in bed on Sundays. It may be something to do with the Monday blues, but the figures showed that countries around the world get up earliest on Mondays, with South Africa waking first at 6.09am.
The survey also looked at the quality of sleep that people from around the world enjoy on average, and it showed that those getting the best quality sleep were not necessarily those getting the most amount of sleep. For example, out of fifty countries that were surveyed as part of the project Slovakia was identified as top of the list when it came to average sleep quality. On average Slovakians go to bed at 1.03am and rise at 7.18am, which is just over six hours sleep on average. At the bottom of the list in 50th place was Malaysia, where people tend to get an average of just over seven hours sleep.
The UK came in at 45th place on this list with an average of just over seven hours sleep per night. While nearly at the bottom of the list when it comes to sleep quality, people in the UK can help to improve quality of sleep by investing in a more comfortable bed or mattress such as those available from Bedstar. This can make a big difference to comfort, support and overall quality of sleep.
Ireland fared even worse than the UK in the rankings, coming in at 49th place out of 50 with an average of nearly seven and a half hours sleep per night.
