How many hours do you sleep?

Sleep well is super important to live a healthy life and the director of the “National Sleep Foundation” ,Charles A. Czeisler, have adjusted the range of hours of sleep generally recommended so far with the help of all the scientists of the Foundation, dividing the population into nine age classes: baby, children from 4 to 11 months, Children from 1 to 2 years, children from 3 to 5 years, children from 6 to 13 years, adolescents from 14 to 17 years, adults from 18 to 25 years, adults from 26 to 64 years, and elderly (over 65 years).

– Baby (0 to 3 months): 14-17 hours of sleep a day (before: 12-18 hours);
– Children from 4 to 11 months: 12-15 hours of sleep a day (before: 14-15 hours);
– Children 1 to 2 years: 11-14 hours of sleep a day (before: 12-14 hours);
– Children from 3 to 5 years: 10-13 hours of sleep a day (before: 10-11 hours);
– Children from 6 to 13 years: 9-11 hours of sleep a day (before: 10-11 hours);
– Adolescents (14 to 17 years): 8-10 hours of sleep a day (before: 8.5-9.5 hours);
– Adults 18 to 25 years: 7-9 hours of sleep per day (age not previously considered);
– Adults 26 to 64 years: 7-9 hours of sleep per day (range unmodified);
– Elderly (over 65 years): 7-8 hours of sleep per day (age not previously considered).

Fell into profound sleepI think 7-9 hours (for my age, 25) it’s maybe to much, but I want to ask a thing…..if this are the suggested hours of sleep per day, why don’t we change the 24h per day?? (I’m joking, but think on how cool it’d be to have days composed of 30h or more? It’d be super easier to manage all things we love…)

See you folks.
