Why You Need To Sleep More Than Six Hours Every Night




If you feel lucky to be getting 5-6 hours of sleep every night, you may be surprised to learn that you really need to sleep more than six hours every night. Yep, more than six, ladies and gentlemen.

The recommended amount of sleep for most adults is actually 7-8 hours every night.

So What Happens If We Don't Sleep More Than Six Hours Every Night?


The short answer: Nothing good. While you might think everything is fine and dandy after a good 6 hours of sleep a night, it really isn't.

In fact, researchers say it is actually just like getting no sleep at all. 

How Can That Be, You Ask? 

After all, chances are you are plugging along everyday just like always, right? You get up like you always do, and make it through the day just like you always do. Simple, say researchers. We are in denial when it comes to not getting enough sleep. Apparently that is how we cope.

So How Did This Study Work?


The study lasted 14 days. During that time, participants were divided into 4 groups. One group slept 8 hours a night, one slept 6 hours nightly, and one that slept only 4 hours at night. They were only allowed to sleep at night - no napping during the day, in other words!

The people in the unlucky 4th group were not allowed to sleep for 3 days. 

Researchers tested their cognitive functions every two hours. The group that slept for eight hours performed the highest. And the group that slept for six hours did okay -  until day 10 of the two-week study.

Turns out that by day 10, the six-hour a night sleepers were performing just like the people who had no sleep.

So even though you may feel like you are doing just fine on your six hours of sleep every night, your body and mind might just disagree with you.

The National Sleep Foundation (NSF), recently issued new sleep recommendations for adults and children. According to NSF, Adults aged 26-64 need to sleep between 7-9 hours every night, while school aged children should now be getting 9-11 hours sleep at night.

Getting enough sleep can help you from getting sick, make periods less painful, and help you lose weight. We really do feel better, have more patience and tend to be much more positive as we make our way through another day. Want more reasons why we need to sleep more than six hours every night? Cosmopolitan has 15 ways more sleep is a good thing for us all.

And if you like a bed-time snack before heading to bed, here are some sleep-friendly snacks to try.

The Amazing Benefit This Company is About to Offer Women


There is a British company that is planning an giving their female employees an amazing benefit soon.

Coexist, an education non-profit, will allow female employees to take time off for their periods, similar to sick days.

Research studies have shown that two per cent of 400 women have ‘severe’ period pain, or dysmenorrhea, while in another study,14 per cent said they were unable to go to work because of it.

It is because of these women that Coexist is planning on implementing the menstrual leave policy.

"I have managed many female members of staff over the years and I have seen women at work who are bent over double because of the pain caused by their periods, says Bex Baxter, one of the company's directors.

Despite this, they feel they cannot go home because they do not class themselves as unwell. And this is unfair," she adds. "At Coexist we are very understanding. If someone is in pain—no matter what kind—they are encouraged to go home."

However, she is quick to point out that women do not have to take time off during their periods - it is not mandatory, rather just a helpful option that offers flexibility in work schedules if needed.

Talk about awesome bosses and amazing company benefits.
