Are you suffering from insomnia these days?
If it makes you feel any better, so are your neighbors it seems.
In a press release from the website Sleepopolis, a study was done of Michigan residents and their sleep habits. Alpena finished 234th in the state for healthy sleep (based on a number of different factors such as smoking rate in a city, unemployment level and percentage of those who exercise). According to researchers, Alpena’s score means “its residents are getting far less quality sleep than those in other towns and cities in Michigan.”
However, the study also showed that since Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s “Stay At Home” order went into effect, and more residents have been working from home, Alpena residents have been averaging an extra 16.3 hours of sleep each month.
Alpena was the only city from Northeast Michigan that was researched.
The best city for sleep in Michigan was Oakland, while the worse city in the state was Albion.
The next time you yawn during the day at least you’ll know you’re probably not alone.
