CHANGING FAMILIES - Having trouble sleeping?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says across the country, one in three adults doesn’t get seven solid hours of sleep.

Adults need between seven and eight hours to stay healthy. That’s much more likely to happen if you’re living in the Great Plains than in the Southeast, according to a map from the CDC.

Here in New Hampshire about 67-percent of people on average get seven or more hours of sleep.

Here's how New England ranks when it comes to the percentage of people getting seven hours or more, when comparing all the states:

10th - Vermont 69%
19th - New Hampshire 67.5%
20th - Maine 67.1%
26th - Massachusetts 65.5%
28th - Connecticut 64.8%
34th - Rhode Island 63.3%

Hawaii ranked the worst state to catch your zzzz's. South Dakota ranked the best.
