We all love a good night's sleep. The average
Brit sleeps for seven hours and 22 minutes per night! Although the
populations of Finland, the Netherlands and New Zealand get more

The type of people who can literally sleep

partners or roomies, but it's not a selfish act of mischief whilst
asleep: in many cases, people don't realise that they snore. If you

refrain from alcohol and smoking, all of which relax the throat
muscles and lead to snoring.

3 The Starfish

Last but not least, the starfish. Have you ever
woken up sprawled out, claiming your territory in the bed? Studies
show that the 5% of Brits who sleep like this, make good friends
because they are always ready to listen and offer help. You may be
seen as a selfish sleeper but really you're a star, just like your
