Scientists have determined how much sleep we need
10 October 2014
Itâs a common belief that we need around seven or eight hours of a sleep a night â but thanks to the recent research conducted by a group of Finnish scientists, theyâve determined that a woman requires 7.6 hours per night while a man has to have 7.8 hours of sleep; particularly if you want to minimise the risk of having any sick days from work.
Taking statistics comparing Finlandâs Social Insurance Institution sickness absence data with a health report of 3,760 participants monitoring their daytime sleeping patterns, the results showed that âamong women, after adjusting for age, insomnia-related symptoms, early morning awakenings, being more tired than others, and use of sleeping pills were associated with sickness absence,â the optimal amount of rest per night was found to be 7.6 hours.
ButÂ for those who arenât so lucky to pack in this recommended amount of sleep during their bedtime, this greatly speeds up the Ageing process â with a study undertaken last year showing that a lack of sleep can in fact double the signs of Ageing skin.
