How many hours of sleep do you need? I seem to never get enough. The last week was pretty hectic and my sleep either too short or constantly interrupted. And hubby has a few days off so that throws me totally out of my daily routine.
I am a very light sleeper, so any noise wakes me up and then it takes an eternity to get back to sleep.
But what about you — the grown-up? Your sleep life is still changing — and not just because time is passing.
How does sleep work in adulthood? Does it change — for better or worse — as we age? And why do we feel like we never get enough of it?
An average adult needs between 7.5 and 8 hours of sleep per night. “But many people can function with 6 hours’ sleep, and there also some who need 9 hours or more.”
If you look at the 1960s and 1970s, people reported average sleep times of 8-8.5 hours a night. Today, it’s much more likely to be 7-7.5 hours or less.
For men, sleep problems tend to get progressively worse with age.
There are a lot of articles out there about how to get better sleep, a big variety of tips and tricks.
What are your favorite tricks to get a better good night of sleep?
Here are some sleepy impressions I found on Zibbet:
I am hoping for some better nights to come up, for some more deep, restful sleep. In the meantime I enjoyed searching for some sleep items on Etsy
I wish you a wonderful weekend, with plenty of sleep !
