Last night’s NFC Championship game had some interesting (and surprising) effects on people’s sleep.
The experts at Sleep Cycle found that despite Philadelphia’s win over Minnesota, Viking fans woke up in a better mood the morning after the game than the folks here in Philly, although both cities had worse wake up moods than usual.
- Philly got less sleep than average and went to bed later than normal, with men staying up about 20 minutes later than women. They also woke up later than usual
- Minneapolis got more sleep than average and woke up earlier than normal this morning
- Both cities also experienced worse sleep quality than normal, although Philly slept slightly better than Minneapolis. I’d wager to say there were several dreams and/or nightmares about the upcoming Super Bowl
