Study: Albanians "world champions" in their sleep

Albanians have been the first in the world in terms of sleeping time.

In a study published by the journal "Nature".

Of the 63 nationalities researched, the study showed that Albanians slept the longest, an average of 7 hours and 32 minutes per night.

Sleep patterns are influenced by age, but are also modulated by other factors, including travel duration, education level and gender. On average, women sleep 7.5 minutes longer than men.

Surprisingly, geography is also a factor. While the global average sleep duration is just over 7 hours, the national average varies by almost an hour.

Of the 63 researched nationalities, Albanians slept the longest, an average of 7 hours and 32 minutes per night. That's significantly more than your average Japanese, who gets by on just 6 hours and 38 minutes of sleep.

So what explains the difference? According to researchers, this is due to cultural norms and geographic latitude.

The article cites workplace napping, which "may be frowned upon in some countries (eg, the US or France), while considered normal by their neighbors (eg, Spain or Italy). Also, "Countries in the Far East, Japan in particular, have been observed to get less sleep. This can be partly explained by the work culture in these countries, Japan being the only nation in the world where 25% of employed workers work more than 50 hours per week. /CNA.al
