How Much Sleep Do You Need?

Scientists are at it again. They just can't settle on the amount of time we are supposed to sleep. Before it was 8 hours, and now? -

Studies show that people who sleep between 6.5 hr. and 7.5 hr. a night, as they report, live the longest. And people who sleep 8 hr. or more, or less than 6.5 hr., they don't live quite as long. There is just as much risk associated with sleeping too long as with sleeping too short. The big surprise is that long sleep seems to start at 8 hr. Sleeping 8.5 hr. might really be a little worse than sleeping 5 hr..

Since I sleep from 8-9 hours a day, if I abruptly discontinue updating this blog you'll know what happened to me.
