You’ve probably heard that you need a good 8 hours of sleep every night. While this is a good guideline, the amount of sleep you need depends on a variety of factors including your age and state of health. Furthermore, 8 hours of sleep interrupted by tossing, turning, and waking, isn’t going to be as beneficial to you as say 6 hours of sound sleep that enters a REM cycle.
The National Sleep Foundation invited a number of experts to conduct an extensive study on the amount of sleep that people actually need. Based on their findings, they came up with a list of windows or guidelines based on age, but keep in mind that additional factors such as your health and lifestyle also affect the amount of sleep you need.
Here are the general sleep guidelines for daily sleep numbers based on their study:
- Newborns (0-3 months): 14-17 hours
- Infants (4-11 months): 12-15 hours
- Toddlers (1-2 years): 11-14 hours
- Preschoolers (3-5): 10-13 hours
- School age children (6-13): 9-11 hours
- Teenagers (14-17): 8-10 hours
- Younger adults (18-25): 7-9 hours
- Adults (26-64): 7-9 hours
- Older adults (65+): 7-8 hours
