RE: How much sleep do you need?

in StemSocial3 months ago

Interesting read. Each time I wake up in the middle of the night for just a few hours, I usually need a longer hours to compensate for it during the day, otherwise, I feel sleep-deprived. I'm in my 30s and wondering why I need so much sleep (10hrs on the average) to function normally.

Hello @gentleshaid
Thank you for commenting and leaving a question mark.
In general the amount of hours someone needs to sleep in order to feel optimal varies depending on the person.
It could also have to do with habit, I'm fine with 5-6 hours of sleep. But I know it's not the norm for everyone.

You could check your hemoglobin, some states like anemia can make people sleepier than usual.
