According to a study, Philadelphia is one of the most sleep-deprived cities in the country.
Residents of one Pennsylvania city don’t appear to be getting as much sleep as they should.
According to a new study, Philadelphia is one of the top ten cities in the United States for sleep deprivation.
The study, which was conducted and published by Compare the Market, a UK-based price-comparison website for all things insurance, polled a little over 1,500 Americans about their sleeping habits.
After that, we had a discussion with Dr.
Kat Lederle, a Sleep Therapist at Somnia, was interviewed to learn more about the topic and to offer advice to those who are having trouble catching those much-needed Zs.
Based on this data, the study determined that the following ten cities have the least amount of sleep on average: Jacksonville, Fla. at number ten (6.16 hours); Philadelphia, Pa. at number nine (6.15 hours); Washington, DC at number eight (6.10 hours); Nashville, Tenn. at number seven (6.07 hours); Phoenix, Ariz. at number six (6.04 hours); Memphis, Tenn. at number five (6.02 hours); Dallas, Texas at number four (5.97 hours); Baltimore, Md
The reasons why people in these cities—or anyone who has trouble sleeping in general—don’t get as much sleep as they should range from inability to fall back asleep after waking up to the worst: the need to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
“While you can’t avoid waking up in the middle of the night, you can prepare yourself during the day to help you sleep better at night,” says Dr.
As a piece of advice, Lederle
“Before going to bed, give your mind a chance to process your day; go over your to-do list and then add three things you accomplished that day.”
“Take mini-breaks throughout the day and be mindful of what you eat and drink; give yourself a 12-hour eating window.”
