Sleep is essential at any age. Period. It powers the mind, restores the body, and fortifies virtually every system in our body. Unfortunately, for many of us, sleep doesn’t always come by so easily. So how much sleep do we really need to get these benefits? The wellness experts at Driven Fit + SWS weigh in…
According to the National Sleep Foundation guidelines, the recommended amount of sleep per night for healthy individuals should be:
While there are guidelines for how much sleep a ‘healthy’ individual should get, of course, that ideal amount of sleep can vary from person to person. This is why the guidelines list a range of hours.

To determine how much sleep you need, certain factors must be taken into account including overall health, daily activities, and your typical sleep patterns.
If you’ve answered “Yes,” to any of these questions, you need more sleep! If you’re a parent, the same applies to your children!
The first step to improving sleep is knowing how much sleep you need (scroll back up for a refresher). The next step is realizing your individual needs based on your activity level and overall health.
It is important to keep in mind that sleep quality is just as essential as how many hours you sleep! It is very possible to get the recommended hours of sleep you need but to still not feel refreshed because your sleep was fragmented or non-restorative.
You need to take time to relax, unwind, and recharge – a solid night’s sleep can help you do just that.
