National Sleep Foundation guidelines 1 advise that healthy adults need between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night. Babies, young children, and teens need even more sleep to enable their growth and development. People over 65 should also get 7 to 8 hours per night.

Knowing the general recommendations for how much sleep you need is a first step. For newborn babies, the “may be appropriate” range is from 11 to 18 hours. For seniors over 65, that range is from five to nine hours. The take-away message is. Whether you need seven, eight, or even nine hours of sleep a night may be up for debate, but the importance of getting adequate sleep is.

An infant may need up to 17 hours of sleep each day, while an older adult may get by on just 7 hours of sleep a night. But an age-based guideline is. When one asks people how much they sleep, the answer is usually in the 7to 9-hour range. However, if you actually track the amount of time that people sleep using an actigraph, most people sleep.

The sleep experts suggest the appropriate sleep duration for teenagers is eight to 10 hours per night, while it is seven to nine hours for young adults and adults, and seven to eight hours for. The amount of sleep you need varies for each person and is affected by several factors. However, for most adults, 7–9 hours per night is the ideal amount.

Pay attention to how you feel during the. You know you need to get enough sleep, but the question remains: How much is enough? Sleep scientist Matt Walker tells us the recommended amount for adults and explains why it’s necessary for your long-term health. Most adults need 7 to 9 hours, although some people may need as few as 6 hours or as many as 10 hours of sleep each day. Older adults (ages 65 and older) need 7-8 hours of sleep each day.

The National Sleep Foundation gets more specific about age and sleep needs-it turns out that depending on your age you may need 7 hours or even 10 hours of sleep!

For most adults, 7 to 8 hours per night seems to be sufficient, although some people require only approximately 5 hours per day, whereas others require as much as 10 hours of sleep each day.
