Are you not sure whether or not you have enough sleep? Do you ever feel like you are tired throughout the day because you didn’t have a good night’s sleep? Sleeping is extremely important for a person and without sleep, it is harder to function and do day-to-day things. Lack of sleep can affect you in ways you can’t even imagine.

8 hours of sleep

It is best for adults to have 8+ hours of sleep in order for them to go throughout the day normally. It is recommended that young adults have anywhere from 7 to 9 hours of sleep, with 6 hours being acceptable. Any more or any less sleep can cause side effects. Sleeping is critical to your health and there are no shortcuts when it comes to sleep.

Side effects of not having enough sleep

Without the standard 8 hours of sleep, it is much harder for a person to function throughout the day. You would get tired and distracted more easily than on a day you had a full 8 hours of sleep. Even though you may think it would be ok to have one night of no sleep, it can tremendously affect the way you act during the day. There are also studies that suggest lack of sleep can decrease things like heart health, liver health, and increase the risk of cancer and more.
