Where you sleep matters

Where you sleep matters

A new study by Flinders University and the University of Helsinki on sleep patterns of 16 to 30-year-olds, shows that location matters.

Young adults in Asia had the shortest sleep duration (6 hours 30 minutes) whereas those in Oceania had the longest at 7 hours 14 minutes.

“Higher work and educational demands in Asian countries compared to the West likely explain the later, shorter sleep duration seen in those Asian regions,” sleep expert Michael Gradisar explains.
