It turned out that the people of Japan and Singapore sleep longer than people in Holland. In Japan the average person pays about 7.5 hours sleep, France – 8 hours in the Netherlands is 8 hours and 12 minutes.
Women sleep longer than men by an average of 30 minutes. The least sleep of middle-aged men. At a young age people usually do not pay attention, when to go to sleep, because the body can recover even after several hours in bed.
