A recent Study has answered an important question, you ask every time you feel jaded or tired:
How many hours should I Sleep?
Am I taking adequate sleep?
Am I Sleeping less than adequate?
Am I sleeping more than required?
What is Bad — Under Sleeping or Over Sleeping?
The Answer to all these questions is provided by a latest study:
Both under sleeping and oversleeping is Bad for You. For an Adult human being, under sleeping means, sleeping less than 6 hours and over sleeping means sleeping more than 9 hours.
Thus for best health person must sleep for 6 to 9 hours. Some people may feel rejuvenated after 6 hours, others may feel so after 9 hours of sleep.
Taking less than 6 hours or more than 9 hours of sleep may result in irritation, lack of energy, tiredness or even depression. The reason for this is a possible Gene mutation which takes place when a person for a prolonged period under sleeps or over sleeps.
Hence, don’t forget to take at least 6 hours of sleep. At the same time, don’t forget to get up before nine hours.
PS: If You see signs of insomnia, then consult your doctor. Sleep Apnea, a sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or shallow breathing or inability to breath is a major cause of lack of sleep or sound sleep.
