The perfect amount of sleep for a long and healthy life
About the author: 

Sleep too little and you increase your chances of dying early; sleep too much and it could be a marker of a serious, possibly, fatal disease

Sleep too little and you increase your chances of dying early; sleep too much and it could be a marker of a serious, possibly, fatal disease. So what's the ideal amount of sleep you should be getting for a long and healthy life? Researchers have discovered that the optimum sleep time is anything from six to eight hours every night. If you sleep for six hours or less, you're 12 per cent more likely to die prematurely, and anything over nine hours of sleep a night suggests an underlying, and possibly fatal, illness. Researchers from the University of Warwick have concluded that consistently sleeping for six to eight hours every night is optimal for good health. But if your sleeping habits aren't in that 'golden zone', don't worry: sleep is just one marker of good health. (Source: Sleep, 2010; 33: 5).
