Hawaii residents not getting enough sleep, survey says

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Hawaii residents aren't getting enough sleep, according to a new national survey.

The survey, conducted by an independent research firm for Sleep Number, said that Hawaii got an average of 6.28 hours of sleep, making it the second most sleep deprived state after Georgia.

The national average is 6.7 hours of sleep, but only 5.68 hours are considered “restful.” The state that gets the most sleep is Idaho at 7.12 hours.

More than half of the people said they wished they knew more about improving their sleep quality – with Hawaii at the top of that list – yet few people actually track their sleep like they do exercise or diet.

Experts suggest getting at least 8 hours of sleep a night.
