coffee break ver. 1.28

I am a certified sleep addict. And I have proven that just yesterday. I technically slept the whole day! My only waking moments were during Bo Sanchez' The Feast, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The in-betweens? I was snoring my heart out.

Sleep is defined as a natural state of body rest observed throughout the animal kingdom. It is common to everyone. Sleep is essential for survival. It keeps us rested and rejuvenated for the coming days. Our brain, however, stays active while we sleep. And it is known, through various researches conducted, that sleep happens through different stages. And several things happen in each stage. (source: wikipedia)

Some people believe that as we get older, humans need less sleep unlike younger children. I think though, that older people has a tendency to sleep less because they tend to have less time to stay in a deep and restful stage of sleep. Most adults need 7-8 hours of sleep. School-aged children need about 9-12 hours. Babies, on the other hand, need about 13-16 hours of sleep. In this week's coffee break, let's discuss this:

How much sleep is enough
to keep you rejuvenated for the next day?

I need 6 or more hours of sleep, Jan. Or else, I would be a walking zombie with a bad headache the following day. ;)

But when the day is tiring, I can sleep as early as 6:30 PM and wake at 6:30 AM the following day. Hehe.

A Life in Bloom
Because Life is a Blessing

Hi Jan, for me its at least 8 hours. I get allergic rhinitis the morning after when I don't get enough hours of sleep.

Hi Jan, I love to sleep too! I need a full 8 hours to be totally rejuvenated but since I'm a mom now, I can usually get by on 6 hours.
