How Much Sleep Do You Need?

Before you get down to checking out different sleep remedies, it’s important to determine exactly how much sleep you need.

According to the National Sleep Foundation(NSF), sleep needs vary greatly by individual. You should also listen to your body. Ultimately it knows what you need.

For adults, the results were as follows:
  • Younger adults (18-25): Sleep range is 7-9 hours (new age category)
  • Adults (26-64): Sleep range did not change and remains 7-9 hours
  • Older adults (65+): Sleep range is 7-8 hours (new age category)

These are just general recommendations, however. Your own sleep needs, as shown in the infographic above might vary. These numbers are a good place to start and see how much sleep actually makes you feel well-rested.
