HOW TO KNOW HOW MUCH SLEEP YOU NEED FOR A RESTFUL NIGHT

Consider the time-related rules you can remember by heart. After eating, wait 30 minutes before you go swimming. Two hours before your flight, arrive at the airport. Visit your dentist every six months. Ask yourself this question: “How many hours should I sleep?” (The answer to this question is different for everyone. Here are some tips to help you determine how much sleep you actually need.

Everyone has different sleep needs.

Sleep needs to change over your life span. It’s common to sleep half the day when you’re young. For good health and well-being, your sleep needs will decrease as you age.

Although age is the main factor that determines how much sleep you require, it is not the only factor.

  • Your circadian rhythm, sleep patterns, and circadian rhythm are affected by genetics. A rare short-sleep gene mutation allows people to sleep for six hours each night and not experience any side effects.
  • How much sleep you get depends on your mental and physical health. People with anxiety and depression, for example, tend to sleep less in deep sleeping stages so they might need to be more awake to get restful sleep.
  • Different lifestyles have different sleep needs. For intense training, athletes need more sleep.

Do you feel well-rested? This is how much sleep you should get.

The ultimate goal of your search is to find your Goldilocks spot, that place that provides you with the right amount of quality and restful sleep to make you happy, healthy, and ready for anything in the world.

You need to determine what this means for you. The first step is to set a bedtime that allows you to get the recommended amount of sleep hours for your age bracket. For adults younger than 60, we recommend starting with eight hours. For a week, stick to this routine and maintain good sleep habits throughout that time. Track how you feel each morning and throughout the day.

Are you a morning wake-up caller who hits the snooze key and pulls the covers over your head multiple times a day? Do you find it difficult to concentrate and focus during the day? Are you addicted to caffeine or junk food? Do you feel moody? Are you feeling moody? These signs can all be indicators of sleep deprivation.

Are you awoken before the alarm and ready to go? Are you feeling refreshed and full of energy that lasts the day? It’s possible that you don’t need all eight hours of sleep.

You can adjust your sleep schedule until you find the best sleep time for you. You might also consider changing your bedtime. It may be that you fall asleep at 10 p.m. rather than 11 p.m., and your alarm is set an hour earlier. This will make a huge difference in your sleep time.

Do you ever sleep too much?

Surprisingly, yes.

We all need to get an extra hour of sleep every now and again. Oversleeping can cause the same side effects in the short term as too much sleep. If you need to sleep for more than 9-10 hours per night to feel refreshed, it could be a sign that you have other health issues, such as diabetes, depression, or sleep apnea. Talk to your doctor to find out if you should have a professional sleep assessment to help you understand why you’re oversleeping.
