If it seems like you sleep better when you're on island, you're not imagining it.
The Centers for Disease Control reports the best rested Americans live on island territories and the state of Hawaii.
A nationwide survey of 403,981 people asked, "During the last 30 days, for about how many days have you felt you did not get enough rest or sleep?"
Folks from West Virginia said they were sleep-deprived 19 days, the highest number in the survey. Virgin Islanders were well down the list at 9.6 days. In fact, the Virgin Islands was fourth-best for slumber, while Utah and Kentucky were at the bottom of the list (worst).

Wouldn’t you know it. We’re from Kentucky! My wife is always tired from not enough sleep. I’m going have to show her this study. This makes one more reason to relocate or come to the islands a lot more often. I wonder if medical insurance would help cover the trips or if I can count them off on taxes. LOL 🙂
I’m in Kentucky too and while I I have no problems sleeping, this does help my argument to move to the USVI.
Just one more reason to love St John…
I sleep like a rock when I’m there, but can’t wait to get up every morning and enjoy another day in paradise.
