Do you get 7-9 hours sleep most nights?
Do you get under 6 hours sleep most nights?
If you’re 18-60 years old, experts say you need at least 7 hours of sleep each night.
Getting enough sleep boosts your immune system so you’re less likely to get sick and will bounce back faster if you do.
Chronic lack of sleep depresses your immune system, and ups your risk for obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke and depression.
In a 16 year study of female nurses, women who got 5 hours of sleep or less were 15% more likely to become obese.
