How Much Sleep Do You Need?

Sleep is an essential part of your metabolism’s regenerative cycle, allowing your mind and body to refresh, repair, and prepare themselves for the coming day. The purpose of getting enough sleep is to allow you to feel alert, refreshed, and energetic after a long period of activity. The amount of sleep you need may differ from others, and it may also change with age throughout your life. Although a good rule of thumb is to get eight hours of sleep per night, some people feel refreshed after only six or seven hours while others prefer nine hours of rest. Too little sleep can negatively impact daytime activities because you feel irritable and sleepy. However, consistent sleeping times of more than nine hours are associated with health risks as well. The ideal amount of sleep varies from person to person, but once you determine your needs it’s best to stick to a regular sleep schedule.
