This Is How Much You Should Sleep Based On Your Age


Let me ask you something. After a long, tiring, demanding work day, what is it that anyone wants to do when they get home? If your answer is “sleep” then you are most certainly correct. Sleep is the best part of the day, and a lot of people will agree… even if it technically marks the end of the day.

Of course, for all of us to stay in good health, we need to maintain a good sleep pattern and get enough hours of sleep every day. There are plenty of sleep disorders out there, and most of them are nothing serious. I’m sure you’ve all heard of nightmares, sleepwalking, and sleeptalking, and there’s even a phenomenon of dreams appearing in the brain while the body is at rest.

In order to stay in good health and have a good night’s sleep every night and have lucid dreams, you need to know how much you need to sleep per day. Luckily for you, just such information is what we’re about to tell you.

A professor at Harvard University, Charles Czeisler teamed up with a group of experts and conducted a research to find out how many hours one needs to sleep and how different amounts of sleep affect one’s health. And after over ten years of statistics and information accumulated, these are the conclusions they came to:

-Newborn (0 to 3 months): 14 to 17 hours.

-Babies (4 to 11 months): 12 to 15 hours.

-Children (1-2 years): 11 to 14 hours.

-Preschool (3-5 years): 10 to 13 hours.

-School Age (6-13 years): 9 to 11 hours.

-Teens (14 to 17): 8 to 10 hours.

-Youth (18-25 years): 7 to 9 hours.

-Adults (26-64 years): 7 to 9 hours.

-Seniors (over 65 years): 7 to 8 hours.

So in case, you’re not up on how much you need to dream per day, this should fill you in. And remember, make sure to get as many hours of sleep per night as you can, because it could seriously affect your health. Less than three hours of sleep can seriously affect the health of your heart, so please take note.
