A new interactive map has uncovered the sleeping habits of the nation, including Coventryand Warwickshire residents.
New research, led by University of Leeds and Silentnight, found 25 per cent of Brits slept for only five hours - or sometimes less - per night.
The national recommended average is seven and a half hours, and the new findings show where sleep debt is most prominent in the country.
Warwickshire residents get just shy of the national average, and enjoy just under seven hours of sleep a night.
The study of more 1,000 UK residents also investigated levels of sleep satisfaction, asking participants to mark their sleep out of 10.
Residents of the West Midlands, meanwhile, typically sleep for around half an hour less than their Warwickshire counterparts every night.
Almost half of those surveyed felt ‘unsatisfied’ with their sleep, with the study revealing a sizeable discrepancy between how much sleep we intend to have and how much we actually get.
While we recognise that between seven and eight hours is what we need, we typically get nearly an hour less than intended.
|Intended sleep||7.6 hours||7.5 hours|
|Actual sleep||6.9 hours||6.5 hours|
|Average||West Midlands||National average|
|Intended sleep||7.4 hours||7.5 hours|
|Actual sleep||6.4 hours||6.5 hours|
Commenting on the findings, Silentnight’s sleep expert Dr Nerina Ramlakhan believes there are many factors, including mental health, diet and technology, which can result in residents being unable to nod off.
She said: “There are many factors that can prevent us from being happy sleepers but there’s plenty of simple things we can try to help get a more enjoyable night’s sleep.
