Tired? You’re not alone! New research from Sleep Country Canada and SleepScore Labs has found that the average sleep time for Canadians is pretty short — with the majority of people snoozing for just 6 hours per night.
The study, shared with Narcity, analyzed over 94,000 nights of data from users via the SleepScore mobile app.
One of the major things they found was that “Canadians are sleep deprived with users averaging six hours of sleep per night – far below experts’ recommended seven to nine hours a night.”
Additionally, the research suggests that the majority of Canadians (79%) fall asleep within the recommended range of 5 to 30 minutes, with the most common time taken to drift off being just 22 minutes.
The findings also suggest that there’s a connection between social isolation and snooze quality, as the people who had higher social isolation levels were more likely to have issues sleeping.
