So how much sleep do I need? According to Helpguide.org, adults need about 7 hours of sleep per night.
What happens if we don’t get enough sleep?
Many of us want to sleep as little as possible. There is so much to do that sleep seems like a waste of time. Yet sleep, an essential time of rest and rejuvenation, benefits our minds and bodies in many ways. When you continuously don’t get the amount of sleep you need, you begin to pay for it in daytime drowsiness, trouble concentrating,
irritability, increased risk of falls and accidents, and lower productivity.
