Why and How To Sleep Faster and Better
Everybody feels better after a good night’s sleep. So it’s pretty obvious we need sleep to maintain our body and mind. But how can we sleep faster with all the distractions and thoughts? And how can we sleep better and recover faster?
How much sleep do you need?
How much sleep you need depends on your age and daily activities. Let us not turn around the fact, that an adult, requires 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night, to function properly. A construction worker will require more sleep, than an office employee, who works for 6 hours a day.
Some people talk about the “Elite Sleepers”, that only require 3 hours of sleep per night. And still functioning like any other human who has slept for 7 to 8 hours. I believe this is not true.
