These Are The Recommended Sleep Times According To The National Sleep Foundation

One research has been conducted by Charles Czeisler -- a professor at Harvard University, in order to establish the exact amount of sleep that is recommended. So to get the results there were numerous studies between 2004 and 2014. And the results were obtained when they evaluated the objectives and discovered how much time is enough to rest in order not to have a negative impact on the health.

According to the different stages of development, these are the recommended hours of sleep:

 

  • Newborn (0 to 3 months): 14 to 17 hours.
  • Babies (4 to 11 months): 12 to 15 hours.
  • Children (1-2 years): 11 to 14 hours.
  • Preschool (3-5 years): 10 to 13 hours.
  • School age (6-13 years): 9 to 11 hours.
  • Teens (14 to 17) : 8 to 10 hours.
  • Youth (18-25 years): 7 to 9 hours.
  • Adults (26-64 years): 7 to 9 hours.
  • Seniors (over 65 years): 7 to 8 hours.

These are not the exact hours. So everyone has its own way to determine the number of hours his body needs. But the number of sleep below the recommended hours of sleep can increase the changes of health problems.
