Do Humans Really Need 8 Hours of Sleep?

In school, we were taught that people need 7 to 8 hours of sleep to stay healthy – but as times have changed and we have grown up, is that rule really still applicable?

Well, you can get the first real answer to that by evaluating your own sleep cycle and how it affects your life. How many hours of sleep do you regularly get each day? Do you sleep for less or more than the recommended hours? How do you feel after being deprived of sleep for a few days?

For many, the answer would surely be the same: sleep deprivation causes a lot of issues, including feeling tired and drowsy during the day.

The next question would be whether we can pay off the “sleep debt” by sleeping extra hours on the days after being deprived.
