How much sleep do we need?

This differs among people, there are no standardized normative requirements. The need for sleep depends on age, gender, season and the level of physical or mental activity. Children need the most sleep, elder people as we know less. Physical movement promotes sleep. Since older people are often less (physically) agile, their need for sleep also declines. But don’t worry if you once have a lower desire and capability for sleeping – perhaps your “sleep pressure” is too low? Just important: don’t stress yourself by forcing yourself to sleep at all costs. If you are not sure how much sleep you really need and whether you have slept well, there are numerous health apps and smart watches that can measure your sleep data.

We want to take a closer look at topics all around sleep quality, lack of sleep and the correct sleep duration.
