I read this article on how about a third of Americans aren’t sleeping enough.
The one thing I noted from the article is how the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) “recommends seven to nine hours of sleep per day for adults and 10 to 11 hours for school-age children.” However, cramming all that sleep together at once might not be the best way to sleep.
Last week, I wrote about biphasic sleeping, which is considered the “most natural sleep pattern,” and its benefits. A search for biphasic sleep on the NSF website yielded no results. I shouldn’t be surprised though. It might be hard to convince people to turn off their lights, televisions, game systems, computers, etc. in exchange for a good night’s sleep.
