How Much Sleep Is Appropriate For Your Age?

How much sleep is appropriate for your age

Why do we need sleep?

Sleep is very crucial for our health. As per a survey report, we all spend almost one-third of our life asleep. If we cannot sleep, then there must be health-related issues that cause us to not get enough sleep. According to the research by the experts claim that sleep is the most activity that a body needs in all of the ages.

Sleep is just like a shift of taking rest for your body, if we allow our body to take more than needed sleep then it may cause damage to our body, so it is better recommended to take average sleep for all age groups.Some residential schools use best practices for their students so that they sleep well because sleep is very beneficial for our health,according to girls boarding school in India,the more you need to sleep which is why a good sleep is beneficial in achieving success at school.

The amount of sleep, a person, takes only depends on how he will feel good and productive. So, there are many age groups that are recommended to sleep in 24 hrs such as age between 15 to 60 years (approx) need 7 hrs or more than that, from age 61 to 67 years need nearly 7 to 9 hours, and from age 65 years onwards they are recommended to sleep near to about 7 to 8 hours. So, as we become older, we require more sleep because of the transformation in our body due to ages.

Talking of the age group from 18 to 30 years requires 7 to 9 hours of sleep, but almost half of the world does not follow this rule and mismanages their sleep due to work, studies, party, etc..…. But if this time management goes wrong, then it will be very difficult for the body to readapt the routine. It is very important for everyone to take proper sleep to work efficiently in life. By taking inspiration from Japan, we get to know that if a person is able to work restlessly, then he will have succumbed to health issues. In Japan there is a rule that the citizens can have flexible time to choose for their work, so that they may not have any difficulties during the work, so the people out there choose only 4 to 5 hours of work daily.

How Much Sleep Do One Require To Be Healthy?

Just like in physics we have the thumb rule for showing the direction of an electric field, we must also follow the same thumb rule of sleep for children and adults according to the age vary from person to person.

As an individual, we should decide how much sleep is needed considering one’s overall health, routine activities, and sleep patterns. So in order to be punctual, we must ask a few questions to ourselves to assess individual sleep.

1) Are you active after sleeping, nearly seven hours of sleep? Or should you need to sleep more to have a complete sleep?

2) Do you feel sleepy while doing the work or feeling uneasy when you drive?

3) Are you facing any health-related issues when not sleeping?

4) What are the precautions that you are taking for not getting proper sleep?

5) And how can you completely resolve the issue of sleep?

Sleep Required in for Teenagers:-

Nowadays, most of the teenage groups are not having proper time management due to various burdens, work, college, school projects etc…so in order to be healthy, they must take some precautions by obeying their parents. Because at an initial stage, these groups may not understand that not sleeping sufficiently may lead to problems in the future. So, the parents are required to teach their loved ones to sleep sufficiently that they may not face any health-related problems in the future.

One should always take proper sleep and good food in order to be healthy and active throughout the day; the reason being drowsiness in some people is their lack of sleep due to workload. So it is most important for the teenagers to think upon it seriously and act upon it.

In conclusion, we suggest that irrespective of age one should always have a proper sleep to be healthy and active not only in the present instances but as well as in the future also.
