Recent studies have opined that each night, the advisable time duration for sleep, should be at least eight hours.

These problems include insomnia, feeling tired after waking up, difficulty staying sleep and other health problems.

In the study, it was observed that the ‘eight-hours’ sleepers are not troubled by much health issues, but the ‘7-hours’ sleepers were plagued with numerous sleep disorder including insomnia and waking up from sleep feeling incredibly fatigued.

At the end of the research, it was finding was that those who had more than eight-hours sleep had experienced a host of the entire sleep disorder listed on the questionnaire than those whose sleep time span seven to eight hours.

It was also noted by one of the researcher that those who had slept for more than eight hours found it difficult to sleep as a result of the long time they had spent in bed. According to the study, a good way of curbing insomnia was ‘spending less time in bed’.
