We should spend 8 hours sleeping (if we’re lucky).
Yet there are so many people who get less than the requisite hours and suffer terribly because of it. Does that sound like you? If you said yes then the science says that you’re someone likely to experience a great deal of unecessary stress.
According to The Academy Of Sleep the human body is a huge powerhouse and on daily basis it undergoes a lot of stressors: physical, mental and sometimes, the horror, both. The body needs adequate time to shut down and recuperate all it has lost during the day. 8 hours is recommended by the Academy.
Now, you may want to disregard the sluggish feelings, the dark circles under yours eyes and the weary face looking back at you in the mirror. However, things look a whole lot worse when we check out the other disadvantages associated with a lack of adequate sleep: weight gain, loss of concentration, irritability, accidents while driving and a heap of stress related illnesses.
