How much sleep is enough

 

Sleep is a necessity and not luxury as many sees it. people see sleep as a waste of time therefore regard anyone who wants to get some sleep as lazy and not hardworking hear some friends saw money must be made at all cost, but truth be told dear friends that the amount of sleep you get affects everything about your life, your productivity, emotional balance and even sexual health. Individuals who get enough sleep for themselves have always been known to be

Happier

Better at sex

Better drivers

Healthier skin

Free from headaches.

The quality of sleep you get virtually affects every aspect of your life. Sleep is not just when the body shuts down; while you rest your brain stays busy. This prepares you for the next day activities, so when you deprive yourself of sleep then you are headed for a major breakdown. This is very practical, the desktop computer in our homes can work all day quite alright but when the computer system works continuously for a week or two without putting it to rest, definitely the system in no time will crash. The same applies to the human system. Having known the benefits of sleep, the question here is how much sleep should I get, how many hours of sleep is healthy.
