Which State Sleeps the Longest?

Do you track your sleep? SleepIQ® technology gives you the inside track on how well you sleep each night, as well as giving personal insights into your sleep. Here at Sleep Number we believe in quality over quantity sleep. The choices we make during the day, such as what we consume, our activity/stress levels and sleep environment, affect the quality of sleep we get at night.  We did some digging and found that our SleepIQ® sleepers stack up well against the national average of 6.7 hours of sleep – WOOT! Below is a snapshot of where each state ranks according to sleep duration.

The top five states, with the longest average duration of sleep, are Mississippi, Alaska, Alabama, Louisiana and Arkansas. The bottom five states, with the shortest average duration of sleep, are Ohio, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Nebraska and Hawaii. See below where the rest of the U.S. ranks.
