What Happens to Your Body If You Sleep 8 Hours Every Day

But what about such people who need less or more sleep?

I heard that everyone has their own sleeping cycle and needs different hours of sleep to function well

Not sure about that, but sometimes I need 10 hours to feel myself finally rested :D

"Most adults require approximately 8 hours of sleep per 24 hours, but there can be substantial differences among individuals. Sleep needs may range from about six to nine hour"

I don't need 8 hours during the week if I go to bed early I wake up around 2 or 3am. I get around 6 hours sleep and don't have diabetes, I'm not fat or sluggish, my balance and coordination is fine and I remember this just fine. Admittedly I go to the gym twice a week and power walk all over the place so my fitness is fine and therefor find this study a bit ambiguous we are governed by genes and life choices as well as biology.

one thing that i want to tell you that we should sleep at night like enough time 11:00pm because after 12 (mid night) our repairing system will not work so this 8 hours sleep is essentially should be taken at night.
