How much sleep do I really need?
The total number of hours you will need to sleep to function at your optimum level will depend on your body’s individual needs. As a general rule, healthy adults should aim to achieve approximately 7-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. Of course, the amount of sleep required for children to function well and develop normally is much higher. For many people, while they may be in bed for long enough, disturbances in their natural sleep rhythm can lead to a reduction in the amount of actual sleep they achieve each night. People who do not sleep well and/or enough can suffer from cognitive lethargy during the day, reduced energy levels, and irritability. By prioritizing your sleep, you will set yourself up for a happy and fulfilling life at work and at home.
What is a sleep disorder?
The term sleep disorder refers to a broad range of conditions that could prevent you from falling asleep or staying asleep, or those that may impact the quality of the sleep you do get. There are three stages of sleep that your body will cycle through naturally throughout the night; light sleep, deep sleep, and REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Each of these stages is important for different reasons. Patients with sleep disorders will often not get enough of 1 or all types of sleep, leaving them feeling fatigued and distracted during their waking hours. Some common sleep disorders include obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, as well as narcolepsy. At Koala® Center for Sleep and TMJ Disorders, we can help you develop a treatment strategy designed to help you fall asleep more easily, achieve deeper and more restorative rest, and wake at an appropriate time for your lifestyle.
