On average, we sleep for 1/3 of our total lifetime. It’s the time when our muscles, decision making, hormone, and appetite are reset and rebooted, making it one of the most important habits to maintain at a healthy, constant rate.
With that being said, it is important that we get the proper amount of sleep each night. According to the National Sleep Foundation, adults ages 18-64 should be getting at least 7-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Anything more or less than that will cause our bodies to feel groggy and unproductive. Older adults (65+) need less sleep than the average adult and should get no more than 7-8 hours of sleep.
If you stay on top of your sleep schedule you will find yourself becoming more productive and energized every day. You cannot make up for lost dream time, so make sure you’re getting the right amount of sleep every night to stay happy, healthy, and rejuvenated.
