A recent article in Time Magazine’s Labs highlights data gathered from Withings, a maker of health-tracking devices, to say America may not be “so bleary-eyed after all.” Here are 5 fun things to know from the article and the study by Withings.
When do we go to bed? When do we wake up?
The average time Americans go to sleep is 11:32 PM. The average time they get up is 7:22 AM. That’s just less than 8 hours of sleep and well within the suggested 7 to 9 hours needed by adults.
Which state goes to bed the latest?
New York, home to the "city that never sleeps" does as expected: on average, New York's residents go to bed the latest. They add an extra 20 minutes to bedtime and go to sleep about 11:54. But, they also sleep in later than any state except North Dakota. The average wakeup time in New York is 7:36 AM.
Which state turns in the earliest?
Unlike the North Dakotans, South Dakotans turned in earlier and got up early. South Dakota residents went to bed the earliest of any state, but they also rise and shine. They are the third earliest state to rise.
Which state wakes up the earliest?
Who was out of bed at the earliest hour? You might guess it would be the residents of Colorado – after all Colorado has the lowest obesity rate of any state. They’re up and at it at 7:07 AM on average. Their wakeup time is followed by Rhode Island and South Dakota. The Midwest goes to bed the earliest as a region.
Which state sleeps the least? The most?
The least sleep is clocked by the residents of Delaware, but they’re still sleeping 7 hours and 36 minutes. Montana gets the most rest – pushing past the 8 hour mark by 20 minutes.
