Kelsey Seybold's Dr. Puneet Patni said people who live in big cities have increased demands and pressures, and a totally different lifestyle from those in smaller towns.
“But, there’s so many other factors—commute time can definitely play a role. Noise pollution, which can be tied to amount of construction activity around you. Air quality which can affect people suffering from allergies,” said Patni. “Obesity rates vary city to city, so that can also have an impact on sleep; unemployment rates; you’re in a bigger city, you’re more likely to be dealing with a long commute.”
The Tuck Sleep Foundation found the best sleep levels were in Colorado Springs, Sioux Falls and Boise. The worst places were Detroit, Newark and Birmingham, Alabama.
