Scientific evidence

A significant number of scientific studies have examined the benefits of sleep and the risks associated with not getting enough of it. Sleep is a major public health issue because of an increasing number of chronic insomnia cases, especially for children and teenagers.

In June 2016, to prevent the health risks linked to insufficient sleep, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) released its official consensus recommendations for the amount of sleep necessary. [1]

Adults 18 to 65+ years: 7 to 9 hours per 24 hours on a regular basis. [2]
