Not only are Colorado residents some of the fittest in the country, they also rank among some of the most well-rested.
Sleep Junkie, a website dedicated to mattress news and reviews, analyzed more than 480,000 records from all 50 states compiled by the CDC’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System to determine the states where residents got the most — and least — sleep.
With 73 percent of Coloradans clocking at least 7 hours of sleep per night, Colorado ranks as the second most well-rested state. South Dakota claims first place by a slim margin: 74 percent of its residents get an adequate amount of sleep every night.
Even though New York is home to “The City that Never Sleeps,” it does not rank in America’s five most sleep-deprived states. According to the study, however, New York falls among “the more rest-averse states.”
