Sleep Time | How many hours should a person sleep | sleep cycle

Sleeping at night is not just a part of your routine. but is the most important thing for your overall development - your height, personality and even your brain. Sometimes we take sleep for granted, that is, we become so busy in our work that we sleep 3 to 4 hours a day and run our work. But doing so is bad for both your physical and mental health. If you have to be full of energy throughout the day, and use your mind to its fullest, then sleep (sleep time) is very important for you. More sleep here does not mean that you start sleeping more. As important as how long you have been sleeping, equally important is the quality of that sleep

You must have seen that some people are only 6 hours at night. But even then, there is energy in them throughout the day. And you sleep for 8 to 10 hours but still you get sleep throughout the day or you always remain sluggish. There is no mind in any work. This is due to your lack of sleep or it may be that the quality of your sleep is not good.

Human being 1/3 in your life means if you live for 75 years, then you spend 25 years of your life sleeping. But perhaps you will not be aware of how many hours you should sleep for complete recovery. It also depends on your age. And below I am going to talk to you about this.

What problems can you have due to lack of sleep

People are thinking that if he is not able to sleep well, then he can complete his sleep on a holiday, earlier these things seemed right. But according to recent research, this method does not make you sleepy. Lack of sleep can damage your immune system. Because of which you can fall ill easily.

The immune system fights viruses that attack your body and protects you from getting sick. More than 16 Research results were observed that people who sleep less than 6 to 8 hours daily are at 12% higher risk of premature death than those who sleep around 8 hours daily. If you have difficulty in focusing in any work or you get angry on small things or any small thing bothers you, then it is all due to lack of sleep. This is called sleep deprivation.

Lack of sleep can also cause depression or changes in the function of your hormones. And due to these balance of these hormones, you may have other diseases. This can also affect your height and may increase your weight. Your decision-making ability and your logical, reasoning skills may also decrease. 

Another very dangerous thing is due to lack of sleep, its name is MICRO-SLEEP. You will know it yourself. When you have not slept properly for a few days, you fall asleep for a few seconds or a few minutes a day and you do not even know. Your subconcious mind tries its best to make you sleep because your body is unable to recover itself due to poor sleep and the body that the mind is in wants to keep that body healthy under any condition. That is why your sub-concious mind produces a stage like micro sleep, where without knowing you your eyes start closing and sometimes you fall asleep for a few seconds. This is so dangerous because it can come at any time of your work. Mostly it comes while you are driving. And you can understand how dangerous it can be. In the United States, 90 percent of all accidents are trucks due to micro sleep.

 sleep cycle

Our sleep cycle has 4 stages. Both stage-1 and stage-2 fall under the category of a light sleep. Which you also speak raw sleep. In stage-3 your sleep becomes deep and in the final stage i.e. stage-4 you are in your deepest sleep. And it is also called REM (Rapid Eye movement). In this stage, you also see dreams. That is, if you dreamed it means you were very sound and deep asleep. A 10 to 30 minute nap sends you to stage-2 at the most. In stage-1 you get naps and in stage-2 your brain clears away all other thoughts and allows itself to relax. In this stage your brain processes your store information as well. By getting up from this stage, your productivity increases cognitive function and memory.
