The National Sleep Foundation’s international bedroom poll unveiled several interesting sleep differences among six countries.
The poll compared sleep times, attitudes, habits and bedtime routines of those in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the U.K., Germany and Japan. Results showed that Japan and the U.S. report the least amount of sleep; both countries sleep 30 to 40 minutes less on workdays than other countries. U.S. and Japan both average about six and a half hours per night.
To compensate for lack of sleep, half of Japanese and American respondents reported taking at least one nap within two weeks of the study.
