Sleep Cultures Around the World (Part Two)

Previously, we discussed certain sleep patterns around the world and how the Netherlands are getting the most sleep while Singapore is getting the least! In this second part, we’ll continue discussing sleep cultures around the world and their similarities and differences.

When it comes to sharing a bed, in America 71% of pet owners share a bed with their pet. Across the world, 83% of Vietnamese parents share a bed with their children. One recent development that has affected people’s sleep around the world is technology, specifically with smartphones. In a 2013 study, they found that 68% of people in the US, UK, Germany, Mexico, Japan, and Canada regularly use some form of technology before bed, with that number only going up. In America 73% of people watch television within an hour of going to bed compared to 80% in Mexico.

Regarding the amount of sleep people get, the time they decide to wake up in the morning has little connection to the amount of sleep they get. In fact, the amount of sleep a person gets is mainly correlated to when they go to bed, the earlier the better. With 20% of doctor patients requesting sleep medication and sleep apnea cases reaching 1 billion globally, it's important to prioritize sleep, regardless of work culture or anything else.
