It’s Friday you’ll have to wait until you fall into the deepest and most recuperating snooze. The Middle East wakes up late and happy after nodding off on the first day of the region’s weekend. That day and Thursday nights are when we supposedly rest our heads longest in the week.
For those of us residing in the Middle East, Friday was also recorded as our latest bedtime. Saudi Arabia generally calls it a night at 1am, Kuwait does the same at 12.47am while the United Arab Emirates gives in to feelings of fatigue at 12.39am according to the study by Sleep Cycle alarm clock.
The device looks at sleep pattern data to improve the health of users’ daily lives. The insight to how the world sleeps also revealed that on a worldwide basis, Mondays have the earliest rise and shine time, with South Africa peeling their peepers open at 6:09am, and the UK waking up at 7:16am.
It also is the time when those in the United Kingdom were in the foulest mood, perhaps unsurprisingly with that being the start of their working week.
As a planet we sleep best on a Wednesday with 58% of countries surveyed experiencing the best sleep. However China has the highest sleep quality then, with Czech Republic and Switzerland following closely behind.
Saturday is the world's biggest sleep day - nearly 90% of countries sleep more and wake up later on then compared to any other day of the week, says the report including 941,329 male and female Sleep Cycle users aged 18-55 in 47 countries worldwide.
Topping the chart is Finland getting 8 hours and 2 minutes, the Netherlands has 7 hours and 53 minutes while the UK also has a long resting period, taking 7 hours 49 minutes off the clock.
