What is the optimal sleep time for a human being? Experiments carried out in the USA on the workings of the human brain revealed that six hours sleep every day is required every day making this as a hot topic with many online viewers
Experiments in Intervals of 4 hours, 6 hours, and 8 hours.
In the experiment, subjects were asked to sleep (over a 2 week period) to sleep in intervals of 4 hours, 6 hours, and 8 hours to determine how much work the brain needed at that time.
8-Hour Sleep Intervals
… Almost without any problems.
6-Hour Sleep Intervals
… The same degree as drinking and the brain does not work well.
4-Hour Sleep Intervals
… The Brain functions poorly and starts to degenerate.
The lack of sleep over a long period of time facilitates a steady decline of brain functions over time.
Potential Risks to Not Enough or Too Much Sleep.
As seen from the above results, the ideal amount of sleep time is 7 to 8 hours. In the case of less or more sleep than the average, there are concerns that could lead to lifestyle-related diseases such as the increase in risk of metabolic syndrome and heart disease (the mortality risk seems to rise by 12%). In addition, the risk of too much sleep is similar to not enough sleep on the brain so the risk of lifestyle-related diseases are increased. So, sleeping in moderation is best for the health of the brain.
