Top 5 Countries In The World That Get The Most Sleep


We often read and hear that every human must sleep for 8 hours a day in order to stay healthy. But, with digitalisation and everything that goes around it, many of us hardly manage to get 6-hours sleep, these days.


But, if you ask my opinion, I would like to get at least 10 hours of sleep every day. All you intelligent people out there would agree that sleeping is the most beautiful part of the day. The feeling of leaving everything behind and just lying on the favourite side of your best is one of themes soothing feelings in the world.

According to a study in the research journal Science, age and gender are also big determining factors in the amount of sleep obtained. They found out that women tend to sleep more than men.


We, in India, often get to hear by our parents that we sleep a lot and are lazy. But, now, you can show them this post and argue that Indian, specially Indian kids are not that bad when it comes to sleeping.

Here, we have listed 5 counties that get the most sleep. And, interestingly, our India is not on the list.
