According to a survey by Bensons for Beds it could well be! So if you’re sleepless in Soho or snoring in Stornaway read on…….
Are you kept awake at night by your partner snoring, or noisy neighbours? Have you ever considered that it could actually be down to where you live that’s having an impact on the quality of your slumber?
To celebrate National Bed Month, Multiple Bed Retailer of the Year, Bensons for Beds, has looked closely at each region in the UK to discover where you’re likely to get the most shuteye. The poll investigates the top factors that may prevent people from sleeping well in each area, including weather conditions and uncomfortable beds.
While the bright lights and fast-paced lifestyle of living in the capital certainly has its appeal, the survey found that Londoners are the most likely to have their sleep disrupted. One of the main factors keeping them awake is money worries – perhaps unsurprisingly since average rent rates are 50% higher than the rest of the country.
But it’s not all doom and gloom. The bed retailer also discovered that the South East is the ideal place to get the UK’s best night’s rest. Local residents wisely limit their coffee intake and are the least likely to be kept awake by noisy pets; maybe all that sea air really does tire you out!
Not forgetting the rest of the country, Bensons for Beds also found that the Scots are the nation’s worst snorers, whereas families in Yorkshire and the Humber have the best behaved children at bedtime. Those residing in the North West are a brave bunch, as they’re the least scared of the dark, and if you’re looking for peace and tranquility, then move to the East Midlands – you’ll find the quietest neighbours there!
Carine Jessamine, marketing director at Bensons for Beds, said: “Since we’re currently celebrating National Bed Month 2013, we’re keen to highlight the fact that sleeping is one of the most important activities we undertake.
