How Much Sleep We Need

Dr. David Seiden, Medical Director of the Pembroke Pines Sleep Center with Baptist Health South Florida, says approximately eight hours is the amount necessary of sleeping to maintain a good health. He also points out achieving less than six hours of sleep on a regular basis is not good for health. "It puts you at risk for cardiovascular morbidity, and a number of other issues, like diabetes, and potentially certain kinds of cancers."
