How much sleep is enough?

Sleep requirements vary slightly from person to person, but research continues to prove that most healthy adults need at least eight hours of sleep each night to function at their best. No secret there!

Tips for a Good Night's Sleep

But also, how well you sleep will determine a lot in the energy yo have the following day. And vice versa, your daily routines affect your sleep Similarly

These easy tips will be helpful to get quality sleep, feel more energetic during the day and be productive, mentally sharp, emotionally balanced. Who doesn’t want that?

The first step to improving the quality of your rest is finding out how much sleep you need. 


Keep a regular sleep schedule

Go to bed and getting up at the same time each day, consistency is will be very important for your sleep cycle:

  • Choose the time at which you normally start feeling tired and go to bed at the same time every night. Try to stick to your routine even on weekends. Don’t make rough changes, rather help your body adjust by making the change in small daily increments, 10 minutes earlier or later each day for example.
  • If you’re getting enough sleep, you should wake up naturally, and if you go to bed at the same time, your cycle should be perfect. If you are needing an alarm every morning and hitting the snooze button over and over, you probably  need to set an earlier bedtime.
  • Daytime naps of about 30 minutes are better for recovering lost sleep than sleeping  in late. But if you struggle with insomnia eliminate napping. 
  • If you find yourself getting sleepy on other times, stimulate your mind, do something productive and don’t give into the drowsiness.
  • You may need to experiment the right schedule for you for a few weeks, once you have started going to bed at the same time every night for several days allow yourself to sleep until you wake up naturally. Caution, it may take a few weeks to fully recover if you’ve been sleep deprimed. But eventually you’ll find a natural sleep schedule that works best for you.

Why is sleep so important?

If you got to bed relaxed, you will sleep easier and more deeply. A peaceful bedtime routine sends a powerful signal to your brain that it’s time to wind down and let go of the day’s stresses. We all know we need our sleep. Sleep deprived people can’t think straight, have a harder time focusing, keeping their emotions in check and controlling anxiety that leads to overeating and all sorts of health and skin problems. So a good sleep is important, for more than just an optimal level of energy.

If you eat right, exercise regularly and keep your stress levels in check, you’ll be surprised at how much better you sleep and how much healthier you feel.  exerciseTake this quiz by to Measure Your Sleep Quality
