We’ve all heard that getting at least eight hours of sleep per night is ideal. But, of course, many people don’t get nearly eight hours per night (thanks, Netflix!), and some lucky folks get more. So, how many Michigan residents actually get the full eight hours of sleep, on average, each night?

The crew at Aeris by Robot has put together a study to determine exactly how much sleep residents in each of the U.S. states get per night. “We asked survey respondents how many hours of sleep they get per night on average and to rate the quality of that sleep,” they state in the study. “Additionally, we asked questions about air quality while they’re sleeping, preferred sleeping positions, sleepwalking/talking, and other odd sleeping habits.”

So, how much shuteye do Michiganders get? We actually get a good amount of sleep compared to other states: 7.31 hours per night. That’s pretty far above the national average. Perhaps it’s because there’s nothing else to do during the cold winter months. “On the whole, the average American is not getting the typical eight hours of sleep per night,” they state. “When asking survey respondents how many hours of sleep they get each night, the national average amounted to barely over seven hours (7.05 hours per night to be exact).”

Which state gets the most sleep? “At 7.82 hours per night, residents in Utah get the most sleep on average––11% more than the national average number of hours at 7.05,” the study states. “Residents in Wisconsin and Nevada are runners-up at 7.57 and 7.46 hours per night, respectively. Alternatively, residents in Hawaii get the least sleep (6.55 hours per night)––7% less than the national average.” Perhaps Hawaiian residents are up all night enjoying the beautiful weather. I know that’s what I would do. Read the full study of how American sleep here.
