Asians are also the group most likely to say they get a good night's sleep at least a few or more nights a week.

In Japan, there is a culture of sleeping at work, in public or at parties. Unlike Western cultures where sleeping at a desk is taboo, the Japanese see it as a sign that one is tired from working so hard.
In Spain, there is a tradition of taking a 20 to 30 minute nap after lunch. It's a custom that dates back to the mid-20th century and is aimed at agricultural workers who need to avoid the hottest hours of the day. However, as Spain urbanized, the practice became less popular.
