“Sleep for a healthy life”

Sleep plays a vital role in maintaining good health throughout your life. Adequate sleep is necessary for your brain to work properly.

Insufficient sleep or poor sleep may lead to obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety.

After a two-year study, the National Sleep Foundation in the US announced newly revised recommendations as shown below:

Newborns (0–3 months) 14 to 17 hours
Infants (4–11 months)     12 to 15 hours
Toddlers (1–2 years)        11 to 14 hours
Preschoolers (3–4 years) 10 to 13 hours
School-age children (5–12 years) 9 to 11 hours
Teenagers (13–17 years) 8 to 10 hours
Adults (18–64 years) 7 to 9 hour
Older Adults (65 years and over) 7 to 8 hours
