Does Your Suburban Home Deprive You Sleep

Everyone knows that Vancouver Real Estate is more expensive than homes in the valley. Ever wonder why you pay more for a home in Vancouver? The loss of sleep may be part of that price and the reason you have to take a nap on your lunch hour.

Statistics Canada Confirms

A study showed conclusively that people with long commutes sleep less than others. People who commute an hour or more per day reported that their sleep lasted about 7 hours and 41 minutes. People with short commutes, 1 to 30 minutes, slept on average 22 minutes longer. Again, men tended to sleep less than women.

Is it Possible?

I suspect but cannot confirm, that those who choose not to commute but instead have chosen to spend their money for a modest home in the city, are less stressed, happier, clearer thinkers who might use that extra 22 minutes a day to watch their kid play ball or take their sleeping dog for a walk.
