National Sleep Foundation Releases Age-specific Sleep Guidelines

The National Sleep Foundation released guidelines on how much sleep an individual needs based on his or her age group. As reported by Fast Company, these guidelines are the first of its kind – no other organization has released official age-specific sleep recommendations before based on a scientific literature review. Newborns (0 to 3 months) need the most sleep at 14 to 17 hours, while older adults (65+) require the least at 7 to 8 hours. If you are meeting these recommendations each night but still feel tired during the day, you could benefit from a sleep evaluation – FusionHealth can help.
