Sleep loss can lead to irritability, impatience, moodiness, and an inability to concentrate.  We’ve all been there, haven’t we?   Trying to make it through the day with a foggy mind and zero energy really takes its toll on our body.  

When we live our days lacking sleep, we have a much more difficult time putting one foot in front of the other. Lack of sleep can also wear our bodies down to the point of sickness, even possibly leading to more serious things like disease and cancer. 

How much sleep do you need? 

 According to the National Sleep Foundation, the number of hours of sleep required depends on each age group: 

Newborns – 2 months: 12-18 hours 
3 months – 11 months: 14-15 hours 
1-3 years: 12-14 hours 
3-5 years: 11-13 hours 
5-10 years: 10-11 hours 
10-17 years: 8.50-9.25 hours 
Adults: 7-9 hours
