How many hours should we really sleep? Because are to my teacher news said that we should sleep like not more than 8 hours because we'll get more chances of dying earlier and he said that we should only sleep like 6 hours a day only..what's the real truth...anyone know the answer?

The globally accepted concept on sleep is that minimum 6 hours is needed for the adults to keep themselves fit and healthy. Less than that could cause cardiac problem and more than 8 hours is too much and it has its own side effects. Between 6 to 8 hours sleep is sufficient and is normal enough.

As far as I know 8 hours is optimal for our brain to function normally. I have never heard "6 hour rule". As far as I know if you are sleeping less than 8 hours you are risking heart diseases, but who will know it for sure what the truth is when the scientists always find something new. Happy mylotting and sleep well!

i've always been thought that sleeping 8 hours a day is the healthy "standard". but personally, i sleep about 9 hours average a day. And my sleeping hours are like 5am and wake at 2pm.
