Why is the right amount of sleep important?

Why is the right amount of sleep important? One of the most important habits, maybe even the most important one, is getting enough sleep. For the average healthy people, seven till nine hours of sleep is required to have your body & mind rest enough. Too short or too long sleeping hours a day, could lead to various issues.

Not enough sleep

When you don’t get enough sleep each night, you’re at risk of viral infections, weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, mental illness, and mortality. Research showed that if you get 6 hours of sleep per night for two weeks straight, your mental and physical performance declines to the same level as if you had stayed awake for 48 hours straight.

Sleep too long

Occasionally sleeping longer as the recommended average won’t lead to huge problems. However, nights of more than ten hours sleep for longer as fourteen days could lead to increase heart diseases, obesity, diabetes, but also depression.

How do you know how much sleep you need?

While the required amount of sleep ranges for adults between 5 to 10 hours, you shouldn’t assume you are at one end of the spectrum unless you have paid close attention to your body. If you are drowsy during the day, even during boring periods, you haven’t had enough sleep the previous night. Most people experience a dip in early afternoon – siesta time. But if you fall asleep in the afternoons consistently, it means you haven’t had enough sleep at night.
