HOW MUCH SLEEP DO YOU NEED ACCORDING TO YOUR AGE?


how-much-sleep-you-need-based-on-age
Every person needs a quality sleep, especially for those who are experiencing chronic diseases and pain management problems.
There is one question that worries us when it comes to sleeping, and that is: “How many hours I need to sleep if I am old?”
The answer is different for everyone. Someone sleeps 4 hours a night and still can accomplish the tasks through the day successfully.
The most common symptoms in sleep deficient people:
  • Not as productive during the day
  • Overweight or gaining weight
  • Caffeine is needed to live through the day
  • Sleepy when driving
How to prepare yourself for a good night’s sleep? The best thing is to read a book before going to bed. That is what you need. Other things that you can do are:
  • Stay within your schedule
  • Develop a bedtime routine
  • Exercise every day
  • Make sure your mattress and pillow suits you
  • Turn off the TV
  • Avoid alcohol or caffeine before bedtime
