You’ve heard this all your life. “get your 8 hours!” “did you get 8 hours?” “make sure you get 8 if you want to be rested”. but is that true?
A group of researchers have recently found that to get the PERFECT amount of sleep anyone between the ages of 38-73 should sleep for 7 hours a night. So, we were close! This will allow you to maintain strong cognitive performance and peak mental health.
You also do not want to overseep or undersleep. Both things can really impact your health and how you function throughout the day.
