sleep is essential for a human. not only humans but all living beings. the sleeping time varies depending on the age factor. while children sleep for 8 to 9 hours or even more, an average working adult sleeps around 5 to 8 hours depending on work conditions. an average sleeping time of 8 hours is good to keep you going. anyway more sleep may not increase or guarentees longer life. but what i have seen is that as one grows his sleeping time also reduces.

It is said that eight hours is healthy, but some people need more, some people need less, and then there are cases where eight hours just isn't possible, as with people who work long shifts, or people who are new parents and have to get up for the baby.
