How do you feel when you wake up? A new study suggests 'Burghers aren't at their best when their feet first hit the floor.
Sleep Cycle, which has a vested interest in such matters, studied data from more than 2-million people during the month of November and report that Pittsburgh led the nation with the latest wake-up time and in the worst wake-up mood.
Latest wake-up time:
- Pittsburgh: 7:45 a.m.
- New York: 7:44 a.m.
- Raleigh: 7:42 a.m.
- Boston: 7:36 a.m.
- Philadelphia: 7:34 a.m.
Worst wake-up mood:
- Saint Paul
The Sleep Cycle app uses a 30-minute alarm window that wakes you in your lightest sleep phase when, presumably, we are the least grouchy.
